xxii                      INTRODUCTION.
" All for Jesus; or, the Easy Ways of Divine Love," was published in 1853, and had an immense sale; forty thousand copies of the French translation were quickly disposed of.
"Growth in Holiness; or, the Progress of the Spiritual Life," "The Blessed Sacrament; or, the Works and Ways of God," " The Foot of the Cross; or, The Sorrows of Mary," " The Precious Blood; or, The Price of our Salvation," "Bethlehem," are the titles of Father Faber's best-known prose works. In 1857, he printed a collected edition of his poems, and, in 1858, a new edition of "Sir Launcelot."
Some of his hymns were printed in 1848 for the use of his congregation at St. Wilfrid's. A volume entitled "Jesus and Mary," published the following year, embraced a considerable number additional. The "Oratory Hymns," containing one hundred and fifty, came out in 1862.
The last three years of Faber's life were seriously complicated with sickness. It was at last discovered that he was suffering from Bright's disease. He gradually failed, and died on the 26th of September,
1863.
At the funeral it was remarked that, through vari­ous circumstances, not a single person with whom he was connected by ties of blood was present.
