Excerpt from The Charges of Jean Baptiste Massillon: Bishop of Clermont, Addressed to His Clergy, Also, Two Essays: The One on the Art of Preaching, From the French of M. Reybaz, and the Other on the Composition of a Sermon, as Adapted to the Church of England &C. &C
The perusal of Massillonls Synodal Discourses, Or Ecclesiastical Charges, having sometimes re freshed my mind with comfort, and sometimes filled me with reproof I was induced to translate such of them as are more immediately applicable to the ministry of the Church of England; after which, thinking that other men might, like my self, be quickened to greater diligence, and more active exertions, in the prosecution of their holy calling, by reading them in our main language, I at length determined to commit them' to the press. I have an additional encouragement to do this, in the persuasion, that young men designed for holy orders may - if they condescend, as I trust they will, to read them - be enabled to form, perhaps, a more exact judgment of the awful obligations the ministry imposes On them; and may, at the same time, be stimulated to discharge those obli-s gations, as soon as they undertake them, with more credit to themselves, advantage to the Church, and glory to Almighty God, than might' otherwise be; invariably, the case.
