Excerpt from The Life of B. John Juvenal Ancina, Companion of St. Philip Neri, Bishop of Saluzzo
This work, indeed, was undertaken at the request of Fathers of the Oratory, London; and to those who are associated with the Oratory, or interested in its work, the book most directly appeals. Not, however, to them alone; for star differeth from star in glory, and every Saint's life has its special lessons. By all readers this will be found an instructive record of a holy life, marked and attractive in its individual features, and illustrating that great period of Saints, when the renewed religious fervour, long desired and prophesied, was so amply realised in the Rome of the sixteenth century.
