Excerpt from Sponsa Christi: Meditations on the Religious Life "Send a woman to a woman, they understand one another we can," was the saying of an experience Jesuit of the olden time - Father Albany James Christie. In like manner Mother Stuart, of the Society of the Sacred Heart, observes that a woman's piety is not quite a man's piety, her faults not a mans faults, her aspirations, her aptitudes other than a man's. This fact justifies Nuns writing Meditation Books for the use of Nuns - Sponsa Christi is a feminine title. At the same time this book will be valuable for Priests and male Religious, not only to administer in Convents, but to make their own meditations for their own benefit, if they will remember that the book is not written primarily for men, and in some cases requires adaptation to their case. There is a refreshing originality about these Meditations, and many shafts are aimed in them that will go home. The best thing about them is the high standard on which they insist. The world loves to talk of lazy monks and idle nuns; and in this, as in so many other of its criticisms, the world is half-right.
