Waiting for Christ: Meditations for Advent and Christmas

May each Christmas, as it comes, find us more and more like him, who at this time became a little child for our sake, more simple-minded, more humble, more holy, more affectionate, more resigned, more happy, more full of God.

The author of this prayer, St. John Henry Newman (1801-1890), was celebrated during his lifetime for his preaching and revered as a spiritual master long before his canonisation by Pope Francis in 2019. In this volume of selections from some of his most famous sermons, you will find the deep understanding of the human heart for which is he is known, and the memorable, moving language and imagery that have made him one of the most admired writers in the English language. Intended primarily as a devotional aid, for ten minutes of daily spiritual reading between the feast of St. Andrew (November 30) and the traditional date of the Epiphany (January 6), Waiting for Christ contains such a keen vision of the soul redeemed and transformed by grace that it will invite you to return to its pages throughout the year.
