138. f. 87.
Eminence the late Cardinal Wiseman in early life, when he entered upon his first responsible office as Rector of the English College in Rome. They were intended to form the habit of mental prayer in the youth committed to his charge, and to infuse into the rising Priesthood of England a spirit of personal piety. In them we still recognize the voice we knew so well. Some will yet remember the days, sweet to memory, when these Meditations were read in the Venerable College; and will welcome them as a memorial of one to whom, under God, they owe perhaps the vocation which is their highest blessing. To our clergy, colleges, convents, and flocks, these simple words of the great Pastor we have lost will come with singular persuasiveness and power.
Archbishop of Westminster.
