St. John Henry Newman - The Glories of Mary for the Sake of Her Son

Catholic Culture Audiobooks

“It was fitting, for His honor and glory, that she, who was the instrument of His bodily presence, should first be a miracle of His grace.”

Happy Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception!

The work from which this reading is taken was published in 1849. The Immaculate Conception was defined solemnly as dogma in 1854. Here Newman evidences the excitement, anticipation, and awe at Mary's Immaculate Conception that was already universally held among the faithful. With this reading, we can make St. Newman’s admiration our own.

Last week we heard a letter from St. Ignatius, in which was recounted some of Ignatius’ efforts to combat the heresy that denied Jesus' humanity. Newman here confronts a similar rejection of the Incarnation, but he does so this time by way of Mary, who, he affirms, alone has destroyed all heresies.

All Hail the Immaculata!
