This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: of the Sacred Heart and of the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. After coming into personal contact with English Catholic ecclesiastics at Rome, he adopts in his Diary, as will be observed later on, Catholic phraseology. 1 This entry, which has no connection with the subject recorded in the Diary, appears to be the result of a mental note, the record of one of the obiter dicta heard in the course of conversation with his Belgian friends. It illustrates one of Cardinal Manning's most characteristic habits of mind, the power of gathering up and assimilating knowledge--the secret of a wellstored mind. But to resume the extracts from the Diary: --17th.--In the afternoon to Liege, a town lying in a valley with hills to the N.W. and S., many open places. On the margin is a pen-and-ink sketch of the town. The Diary is illustrated by frequent sketches of monuments of interest, ruins of churches and chapels and colleges, especially during his prolonged study of Rome. Palace of the prince bishop is fine. Inside a cloister or peristyle like Doge's Palace at Venice and the streets of Bologna. St. Martin's on a high and fine site. The Feast of Corpus Christi first kept in that Church by the canons. Liege alone has with Rome the privilege of perpetual Exposition, four days in each church. The parish priests give tickets to the devout, assigning the number and succession of hours for the perpetual adoration. The night--hours are kept in their houses, the day-hours in their church (The 40 Hours). Went to St. Catherine where a Jesuit preached to the Society do la bonne Mort.-church full. In the evening to the Grands Seminaire to see Dr. Kein. The seminary, an old convent of the Augustinians. Their books still there. A good church more
