St. John Henry Newman - The Danger of Accomplishments

Catholic Culture Audiobooks

This episode marks Catholic Culture Audiobooks’ 50th audiobook release - so who better to hear from than our patron saint, St. John Henry Newman? And to celebrate this milestone accomplishment, what better topic than that of “the danger of accomplishments”?

In this sermon, Newman warns of the danger of separating feeling from acting. Let it not be said that we simply entertained ourselves, merely listening to - or merely reading! - the fine sentiments expressed in the great works featured on this podcast. Rather let us, as Newman says, “apply all we read to ourselves… from the mere sincerity and honesty of our desire to please God.”

Here’s to another 50 episodes more!
