Excerpt from The Year of the Church: Hymns and Devotional Verse for the Sundays and Holy Days of the Ecclesiastical Year; With Brief Explanations of Their Origin and Design

Let times as well as places be adorned with hallowed associations, and days, as well as material objects and localities, teach lessons of piety. The order of our church in this, as in other respects, is greatly helpful to Christian education, as well as to mature piety; and if children were carefully trained, as the church expects from pa rents and sponsors, after she has received them into the con gregation of Christ's flock, and according to the means and the order which she has furnished, systematically and constantly.
