Newman the Priest: A Father of Souls


In stock (can be backordered)

Pope Benedict XVI observed, ‘Throughout his entire life, Newman was a person converting, a person being transformed, and thus he always remained and became ever more himself.’ Newman’s genius and his prolific output of so many types of writing have, in turn, given rise to innumerable books and articles, these most frequently being academic studies of some theme or other of this eminent Victorian’s thought. Presenting aspects of the life of Cardinal Newman and letting him speak to us in his own words, Fr Skinner draws from the tens of thousands of pages that this great pastor penned and presents Newman as a priest, ‘A Father of Souls’. In the words of Pope St John Paul II, Cardinal Newman’s ‘remarkable life, void of sham and ambition, but steeped in a prayerful communion with the Unseen, while it remained alive to the problems of his age in Church and society, continues to inspire, to uplift and to enlighten’. Much attention has rightly been given to Newman’s scholarship and to his extensive writings, but it is important to remember that he saw himself first and foremost as a priest.
