Next Saturday, 9 October, will be the first time that we will celebrate the memoria of Bl John Henry Newman. For those who wish to plan ahead, the Proper for the Divine Office and Mass can be found at this website. The Collect is particularly evocative given the world in which we live:
O God, who bestowed on the Priest Blessed John Henry Newman
the grace to follow your kindly light and find peace in your Church;
graciously grant that, through his intercession and example,
we may be led out of shadows and images
into the fulness of your truth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
