On the right tract with John Henry Newman

Please excuse the pathetic pun in my subject heading. I simply want to bring your attention to a booklet I am presently reading about this upcoming beatus. This tract on Newman is a pamphlet put out by the U.K. Catholic Truth Society (CTS), London. CTS is the heir to the Oxford Movement’s Tracts as it prints and publishes Catholic literature in a succinct and affordable format. If you are looking for a source that will provide a thoroughly complete backgrounder to this marvelous man then this is the book to read. In this edition of its miniature eighty-page Biographies series John Henry Newman: Apostle to the Doubtful by Meriol Trevor and Léonie Caldecott CTS presents, by far, a most accurate compact backgrounder to his life and thinking. This little booklet will be a gem for those too busy to read ‘everything’ in preparation for the SJU seminar on September 18.

One Response to On the right tract with John Henry Newman

    Just came across your website.
    Though we are in the Toronto archdiocese – my husband would have been interested in your conference today. (though your meetings are for your diocese – and the time is too early in the day on Friday’s as my husband is a HS teacher in Brampton and finishes classes at 2:25pm)
    We live in the only 519 parish in the Toronto archdiocese, St. Timothy RCC in Orangeville and our Pastor Fr. Paul Dobson is a huge promoter of CTS as we have a book cart with various CTS booklets and prayer cards.
    (Our choir will be singing 1 verse of Lead, Kindly Light)
    Though I am not at all academic – I do like to pass on the word about good Catholic events etc…
    I know what Communio is about – I think it is wonderful to hear that it has come to your diocese – and hopefully will be in our diocese as well.

    Pax Christi,
