"Blessed John Henry Newman is remembered for the brilliance of his mind and the persuasive power of his writing. But above all, Newman touches the heart. He wins the reader with clarity and beauty, as evidenced on every page of this wonderful book. His work is a labor of joy; it changes us for the better. Everyday Meditations
is the kind of book that, if taken to heart, draws us into the arms of God."
James D. Conley, S.T.L., Bishop of Lincoln
"Everyday Meditations will change your life. Blessed Newman's reflections will speak to your heart helping you grow in faith, hope and love."
Fr. C. John McCloskey, Research Fellow at the Faith & Reason Institute
"Who would not want to have arguably the greatest theologian and convert maker of the last two centuries at his side as he enters into conversation with the Lord on a daily basis? This book will help you immensely in your struggle for holiness and winning the world for Christ and His Church."
Stratford Caldecott, Director of the Centre for Faith & Culture, Oxford
"It is sometimes hard to pray, and often we are distracted from God's presence, though He never leaves us. Nothing makes it easier to remember Him than to follow the prayers and meditations of a holy person such as Newman: we become like children, led by the hand of a gentle and kindly father; or like wanderers once lost in the dark, following the warm light from an open doorway. These prayers and meditations are from Newman's heart, and this new edition of them is a great gift."
Pope Benedict XVI
"Blessed John Henry s teaching on prayer explains how the faithful Christian is definitively taken into the service of the one true Master, who alone has a claim to our unconditional devotion."
