the beloved and blessed John Henry Newman

Model of Friendship
That we are helped to cultivate the gift of charity.
“The love of our private friends
is the only preparatory exercise
for the love of all men.”
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.
