We approve of the publication of the Golden Manual,
and recommend it to the use of the Faithful.
BISHOP OF MELIPOTAMUS.
LONDON, January 1st, 1850.
This Manual contains, in addition to forms in general use, various devotions selected from approved Continental works. The Prayers, Litanies, &c. have been collated with the Latin originals, wherever such were known to exist. The English version of the Psalms here given has been constructed by a comparison of the authorised Douay text (to which, in substance, it adheres,) with the several other versions which from time to time have been sanctioned for the purposes of devotion. The indulgenced prayers have been literally translated from the Raccolta, Bouvier's Treatise on Indulgences, and the last edition of the Celeste Palmetum. The particulars connected with the Confraternities, &c. to which indulgences are attached, have been carefully collected from authorised sources.
