the beloved and blessed John Henry Newman
Day Two – 5 October
Child of Mary
That we learn to see Jesus in the members of our families.
“I have my mission,
I am a link in a chain,
a bond of connection
He has not created me for naught.
I shall do good,
I shall no His work,
I shall be an angel of peace,
a preacher of truth,
in my own place.”
From his writings
Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890)
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.
