Examples from texts

The chapter was the eleventh of John, – the touching account of the raising of Lazarus, St. Clare read it aloud, often pausing to wrestle down feelings which were roused by the pathos of the story.
C’était le onzième chapitre de l’Évangile de saint Jean, le touchant récit de la résurrection de Lazare. Saint-Clair le lut haut; de temps à autre il s’arrêtait pour dominer son émotion.
