In this PODCAzT we will drill into the Collect designated for the Memorial of soon-to-be Blessed John Henry Newman (+1890).
I have as a surprise, a guest appearance by Fr. Timothy Finigan, who will read one of Newman’s famous works.
We drill into the phrase "kindly light" and also the epitaph for Newman’s grave.
Then we hear the excerpt from the Apologia Pro Vita Sua chosen for the Office of Readings for Newman’s Memorial.
Along the way, I comment.
And don’t forget:
105 10-06-24 Augustine on the Baptist; don Camillo (Part VIII)
104 10-05-28 A glimpse of heaven, “the Love that moves the sun and other stars”
103 10-05-24 The new translation of the 2nd Eucharist Prayer; Fr. Z digresses and rants
102 10-05-21 Exploring the new English translation of the Roman Canon; voicemail
Deus, qui beátum Ioánnem Henrícum, presbýterum,
lumen benígnum tuum sequéntem
pacem in Ecclésia tua inveníre contulísti,
ut, eius intercessióne et exémplo,
ex umbris et imagínibus
in plenitúdinem veritátis tuae perducámur.
WDTPRS LITERAL VERSION:
O God, who granted blessed John Henry,
a priest following Your kindly light,
to find peace in Your Church,
by his intercession and example,
that we may be drawn from shadows and shades
into the fullness of Your truth.
