Synopsis: Excerpt from The Christian Life and Virtues Considered in the Religious State, Vol. 3
It is with great satisfaction that I submit to the perusal of the English reader, the translation of the third and concluding volume of Bishop Gay's admirable work on the "Christian Life and Virtues, considered in the Religious State." It is not indeed a satisfaction arising from the consciousness of literary success in the labour of translation, but it is a satisfaction which results from bringing to a termination the rendering into English of a great, and beautiful, and holy work, and one which has occupied me for a considerable time. The effort of translation was made under the inspiration of obedience, and for the profit of a Religious House of the Order, in France. It is a satisfaction also on another ground, from the earnest hope that our Divine Lord will be glorified by the English readers devout and repeated perusal of the several treatises which this invaluable work contains. These treatises unfold in full outline, with great ability and beauty, the nature of the Christian life, and the principal virtues of the Religious state.
