ADAPTED FROM THE FRENCH.
26, PATERNOSTER ROW ;
It is now nearly three years since the following “Scripture Lessons” were compiled, at the suggestion of a Catholic clergyman, for the use of families and schools. Circumstances prevented their publication at that time, and they are now brought forward in the hope that, at this crisis, when the Bishops of Ireland have so emphatically expressed their disapprobation of the absence of religious instruction in the National System of Education, they may be found to supply a want long felt by parents and teachers.
They have been carefully compared, throughout, with the Sacred Text, and revised and approved by competent authority; while the verses of Scripture, at the end of each Lesson, have been selected with a view to indicate to children the sequence of the Old and New Testament, and to impress on their minds the prophecies, in connection with their fulfilment.
A corresponding volume of “ Scripture Lessons from the Old Testament,” is in preparation.
