    "Ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone."—John 16:32Morning ThoughtFew had fellowship with the sorrows of Gethsemane.

    "My beloved."—Song of Solomon 2:8Morning ThoughtThis was a golden name which the ancient Church in her most joyous moments was wont to give to the Anointed of the Lord.

    "I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."—Luke 19:40Evening ThoughtBut could the stones cry out?

    "Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am."—John 17:24Evening ThoughtO death! why dost thou touch the tree beneath whose spreading branches weariness hath rest?

    "Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?"—Job 38:31Evening ThoughtIf inclined to boast of our abilities, the grandeur of nature may soon show us how puny we are.
