Novena to Blessed John Henry Newman: Day 8

Thanksgiving to the Most Holy Trinity, as on everyday of this Novena


From the Holy Father's address to th the Bishops of England, Wales and Scotland

"In the course of my visit it has become clear to me how deep a thirst there is among the British people for the Good New of Jesus Christ. You have been chosen by God to offer them the living water of the Gospel, encouraging them to place thir hopes, not in the vain enticements of this world, but in the firm assurance of the next. As you proclaim the coming of the kingdom, with its promise of hope for the poor and the needy, the sick and the elderly, the unborn and the neglected, be sure to present in its fulness, the life-giving message of the Gospel, including those elements which call into question the widespread assumptions of today's culture."

Blessed John Henry, the address of the Holy Father to our bishops shows us what an awesome responsibility they bear. We beseech you. pray for them, and for us, that we may support them with love and with our own prayer and penance.

Please make your personal petition to Blessed John Henry Newman, particularly for your own bishop.

1 Our Father; One Hail Mary; One Glory be to the Father

Saint Denis, Bishop, and your companion Martyrs, pray for us, and for our bishops.
Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for them and for us..
