Brigbt shadows of true Rest I some sboots of blisse;

Hraben onu a week ;
The next world's gladness prepossest in this ;

day to seek
Eternity in time; the steps by which
We climb abobe all ages ; Lamps that light
Man fbrougb bis bey of dark daps; and the risb
And fall redemption of tbe whole week's flight.

Tbe milky bay chalkt ont with Suns, a clat
Obat guides throngß erring bonrs; and in full storp
y taste of Heaben on eartb ; tbe pledge and cuc
Of a full feast; and the out-courts of glory.

HENRY VAUGHAN, 17th Century.

DIES RESURRECTIONIS DOMINICÆ ... QUÆ TANTIS DIVINARUM DISPOSITIONUM MYSTERIIS EST CONSECRATA, UT QUICQUID EST A DOMINO INSIGNIUS CONSTITUTUM, IN HUJUS DIEI DIGNITATE SIT GESTUM. IN HAC MUNDUS SUMSIT EXORDIUM. IN HAC PER RESURRECTIONEM CHRISTI ET MORS INTERITUM, ET VITA ACCEPIT INITIUM. IN HAC APOSTOLI A DOMINO PRÆDICANDI OMNIBUS GENTIBUS EVANGELII TUBAM SUMUNT, ET INFERENDUM UNIVERSO MUNDO SACRAMENTUM REGENERATIONIS ACCIPIUNT. IN HAC SICUT BEATUS JOANNES EVAN. GELISTA TESTATUR, JANUIS CLAUSIS, CUM AD EOS DOMINUS INTRO: ISSET, INSUFFLAVIT, ET DIXIT: ACCIPITE SPIRITUM SANCTUM ; QUORUM REMISERITIS PECCATA, REMITTUNTUR EIS, ET QUORUM DETINUERITIS, DETENTA ERUNT." IN HAC DENIQUE PROMISSUS A DOMINO APOSTOLIS SPIRITUS SANCTUS ADVENIT : UT CELESTI QUADAM REGULA INSINUATUM ET TRADITUM NOVERIMUS IN ILLA DIE CELEBRANDA NOBIS ESSE MYSTERIA SACERDOTALIUM BENEDICTIONUM, IN QUA COLLATA SUNT OMNIA DONA GRATIARUM.
