St. John Henry Newman - Worship, a Preparation for Christ's Coming Seasons

Catholic Culture Audiobooks

"The season is chill and dark, and the breath of the morning is damp, and worshipers are few, but all this befits those who are by profession penitents and mourners, watchers and pilgrims."

St. Newman's thoughts here compliment his reflections on Christian Reverence, which we featured in a previous episode on the occasion of the Solemnity of Christ the King. With all the preparation that has to go into an audience with a worldly king, how much more so must we prepare for our reckoning with the Lord of All?
