Prayer in Newman, by Giovanni Velocci, CSsR. Translated, with an introduction by Rev Nicholas L Gregoris. Thanks to the skill of Father Nicholas Gregoris, the publication in English translation of Giovanni Velocci's important work Prayer in Newman will bring before a wider audience a significant study. In a few pages are drawn together from Newman's sermons and meditations, both Anglican and Catholic, his reflections on the life of prayer. Moreover, this little work reveals Newman himself to be a masterful teacher of the art of prayer and—most important—to be essentially a man of prayer. In Father Velocci's memorable phrase, “prayer became the preferred occupation of Newman.” 94 pages.
