In my hand He has placed all His treasures, His sacraments, His graces; He has placed there souls, than whom nothing can be dearer to Him; in His love He has preferred them to Himself, and redeemed them by His Blood; He has placed heaven in my hand, hasrent it is in my power to open and close it to others Why might not one re-establish in our own day something of the kind, with due attention to differences of country and priestly duties?
