New Blessed John Henry Newman Devotional

Father Juan R. Velez kindly contacted me and sent me a copy of the book of meditations he edited with Mike Aquilina, published by Our Sunday Visitor. Father Juan is a priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei and he is preparing a biography of Blessed John Henry Newman.

This present volume offers a short overview of Blessed Newman's life and then uses short excerpts from his works with points for meditation, a passage of scripture, and a take-away for the day. Since I received it I have been using everyday and the selections dovetailed nicely with the Pope's visit to the United Kingdom. I recommend it highly.
Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us!
