Journeying with Newman
The Thanksgiving Novena for, with and to
the beloved and blessed John Henry Newman
Day One – 4 October
Example of Humility
That we find opportunity to alleviate the sufferings of those who are homeless and marginalised.
“I sought to hear the voice of God
And climbed the topmost steeple.
But God declared
“Go down again –
I dwell among the people.”
From John Henry’s writings
Please pray one decade of the Rosary (any you choose) for this Intention and add the following Prayer:
O God our heavenly Father,
we offer You heartfelt thanks
for the life and holiness of John Henry Newman.
In him You give us,
an inspiring example of priest and teacher,
heroic and humble, in his labour
for the salvation of souls
and the pursuit of holiness.
Through his intercession,
we ask You to lead us,
by the kindly light of the Holy Spirit
and so grant us peace and joy,
in the one fold of the Redeemer.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Ora pro nobis!
