QuotationI have been reading with great satisfaction Cardinal Schuster's little volume. It has a very fine tone, and its simplicity and solidity make it very attractive as well as useful. I like it very much and feel that it is doing me good. It makes me wonder if I might nog ask Cardinal Schuster to write a Preface to the translation of a forthcoming book if mine on the Psalms. Does he know English? Could you let me know, and I will send him a copy if he does.
