The Blessed Sacrament
The Works and Ways of God
St. Benedict Press LLC
Fr. Faber inspires here a reverential awe and love for God's greatest work, the compendium of all miracles, and Queen of the Sacraments. Affirms that the Blessed Sacrament is the picture of God, the Magnet of souls and the very life of the Church. Includes great insights into the Theology of Transubstantiation (a doctrine often denied today), and describes Our Lord's Five Eucharistic Sufferings and the reparation we should make. As usual, Fr. Faber ranges over the entire Catholic Faith in this work, enlightening our minds and inflaming our souls with a more deeply Catholic outlook on life. 463 Pp. . Impr.
Frederick William Faber lived from 1814-1863 and grew up in Westmorland, England. Though he held to Calvinism in his youth, Frederick had given it up 1837, when he became a fellow of the National Scholars Foundation. He wrote many hymns, poems and other works, including Faith of Our Fathers, The Pilgrims of the Night, The Eternal Father, All for Jesus, Spiritual Conferences, and The Foot of the Cross. Frederick Faber also founded the Wilfridian religious community at St. Wilfrid's, with John Henry Newman as the eventual superior when the order merged with the Oratory of St. Philip Neri. He died on September 26, 1863.
