President General of Our Holy Congregation of the Order of St. Ben...

Excerpt: Such being the distemper of this age, that only good books, and such as are most proper to cure in the very root its disorders, do stand in need of protection, you cannot in justice, as it seems to me, refuse yours to this, the composing and publishing whereof at this time was an effect of your V.R. Paternities' order and commands. Now those very commands, with so much advice and zeal unanimously made, are a very strong proof that this book (for as much as conce...

Wisdom of Solomon

By: Fr. William Most

Excerpt: This book is the culmination of a long process of planning on the part of the wisdom and providence of God.

We saw that at least by the time of the persecution of Antiochus IV of Syria, around 170 AD, many of the Jews came to know reward and punishment in the future life.

The Holy Bible: Young's Literal Translation

By: Grand Rapids, MI: Christian Classics Ethereal Library

Excerpt: In the beginning of God?s preparing the heavens and the earth--the earth hath existed waste and void, and darkness [is] on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God fluttering on the face of the waters, and God saith, ?Let light be;? and light is. And God seeth the light that [it is] good, and God separateth between the light and the darkness, and God calleth to the light ?Day,? and to the darkness He hath called ?Night;? and there is an evening, and there is ...
