Product Description


"Jesus wept, not merely from the deep thoughts of his understanding but from spontaneous tenderness, from the goodness and mercy, the encompassing loving-kindness and exuberant affection of the Son of God for his own work, the race of man."

This insight takes us to the heart of the interior life of St. John Henry Newman (1801–1890), from the treasures of which these meditations are offered as a devotional aid for the season of Lent. Drawn chiefly from his sermons and gently modernized, these meditations offer a share in the fruit of his contemplation, that we might the better enjoy with him the “one thing which is all in all to us,” which is “to live in Christ’s presence, to hear his voice, to see his countenance.”

Paperback. 208 pages.

AUTHOR: Cardinal St. John Henry Newman

Born February 21, 1801 in Georgian-era London, England, John Henry Newman became an Evangelical Calvinist as a teenager, and later a High Anglican priest

within the Oxford movement. He eventually changed his views on Catholicism and converted in 1845, which proved to be a controversial decision and caused him

to lose friends and the support of family members. He nonetheless persisted in his new-found faith and was ordained a Catholic priest in 1846,

and spent many years as an esteemed orator, writer and theologian. On May 12, 1879 he was granted the honor of being elevated to the rank of cardinal 

by Pope Leo XIII. He died on August 11, 1890.
