One of Fr. Faber's greatest books; and definitely his most encouraging; for it was written precisely to help us save our souls by "serving Jesus out of love;" for "everything comes easy to love." Gives us powerful motives for loving God. Says if we did; it would be with us as it was with Jacob working to earn the hand of Rachel: "Years would seem but days; for the greatness of our love." Makes a person feel rich to be a Catholic. This is Fr. Faber at his best!
Fr. Frederick Faber's Biography:
Father Frederick Faber was a noted English hymn writer and theologian, who converted from Anglicanism to the Catholic priesthood. His best-known work is Faith of Our Fathers. Though he was a Roman Catholic writing for fellow Catholics at that point, many of his hymns today are sung by Protestant congregations.
