Brigbt shadows of true Rest! some shoots of blisse;

Hraber once a week ;
The next world's gladness prepossest in this ;

a day to seek
Eternity in time; the steps by which
We climb above all ages ; Lamps that light
Man through bis beag of dark days; and the rich
And full redemption of the whole beck's flight.

The milky bay chalkt out with Sans, a clue
That guides through erring bours; and in fall storp
A taste of Heaben on earth; the pledge and cue
Of a full frast ; and the ont-courts of glorg.

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 EVANGELISTA TESTATUR, JANUIS CLAUSIS, CUM AD EOS DOMINUS INTROISSET, INSUFFLAVIT, ET DIXIT: ACCIPITE SPIRITUM SANCTUM ; QUORUM REMISERITIS PECCATA, REMITTUNTUR EIS, ЕТ 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.
