Preface



Preface

The object of this Httle treatise is to
dispel a certain gloomy mist, darkening
the minds of many, in regard to the
Adorable Person of our Blessed Lord.

Many Christians, even devout and
religious souls, are unable to conceive
a filial and tender trust in Jesus. They
are full of trembling reverence and
fear, and stand in His Presence with
hearts constrained and ill at ease.
These lowly feelings are not to be alto-
gether blamed; they are justly due to
the Majesty of so great a Lord. But
they are too often like an icy wind freez-
ing the spirit of devotion, or like a chill
mist, nipping the opening buds of
piety as the}^ form in the soul. Would
that this fear were accompanied by

Preface



those sweeter feelings which dilate the
heart! Would that as Christians have,
generally speaking, for Our Lady, the
confidence of children in their mother,
they might also have for Jesus the con-
fidence of children in their father!

It is my intention, therefore, to draw
a true picture of Our Blessed Lord, so
as to inspire this filial trust in Him, and
dispel the mist which destroys this con-
fidence. May the benignity of Jesus be
shown in its clear light, "when the
goodness and kindness of God Our Sav-
iour hath appeared." (Titus 3. 4.)
