Excerpt from Liturgia Domestica: Services for Every Morning and Evening of the Week; With Commemorations of the Fasts and Festivals, Domestic and Other Occasions, From the Book of Common Prayer, and Other Sources; For the Use of Families The two first editions of this book were dedicated to and received by the Bishops of the dioceses of Exeter and Salisbury in which the home and sphere of duties of the Editor were placed at the times of their publication; a kindness in each case, of which he ever wishes to keep a record, both as an acknowledgment to them of much for which he has reason to be grateful as spiritual fathers in God, and as some sanction and encouragement in the republication of it. The general construction of the whole book remains as in those editions; the principle on which it rests being sanctioned by the best devotional writers of the Church. The explanation of this which was given in the preface to the second Edition being applicable to the present one, the Editor thinks it best to incorporate his former remarks in this introduction making only such alterations in it as circumstances require, (Where these are considered important, they are printed in italics.) The more the devout Christian looks into the thoughts of such writers, and the more he enters into their feelings, the more will he be convinced that a similar view often guided their selections and adaptations. Taking them as a guide of his thoughts and feelings, he will find himself insensibly led to a persuasion that God, who does nothing in vain - who has filled the earth with works symbolic of His spiritual gifts - who, by His Son, has consecrated the whole face of nature, through the frequent application of it, in figure, to Himself - and who numbers even the very hairs of our head, has not sprinkled by accident over the surface of days, and hours, and months, the various acts of mercy by which our redemption has been wrought; but rather that they have been so allotted to the various times and seasons, that there is never waning to the faithful member of His Church a fitting subject for Christian commemoration.
