St. John Henry Newman - The Special Charm of Christmas

Catholic Culture Audiobooks

Merry Christmas!

Rather than a full sermon today, we’ll be hearing instead from sermon notes jotted down by St. Newman in 1851.

Before his conversion, St. Newman had always read his sermons from a prepared manuscript, according to Anglican custom at the time. As a Catholic priest, Newman preached his homilies in a manner with which Catholics were more accustomed, with a more extemporaneous feel.

Interestingly, his sermon notes were, for the most part, written down after the sermon, not before - an indication that, even after having been prepared, Newman’s thoughts would continue to develop as he preached.

Though his sermon notes are, by comparison, more muted than his full sermons, they are, nevertheless, fascinating and rewarding  in their own right.
