ADDRESS

DELIVERED PRIVATELY

TO THE

CANDIDATES FOR HOLY ORDERS,

IN

THE DIOCESE

OF

Barvados and the Leeward Islands. .

« Before I became a Priest, which I had a desire to be very young, I
had a very great veneration for that order. I considered it as honourable,
because its end was the honour of God, and the reconciliation of Him to
men: as weighty, because the eternal happiness of many was proposed
to be gained by it; as delightful, because the subjects of it were learning,
virtue, and piety."—Parochial Pasturage.
