 Our Description


Cardinal Newman for Today by Rev. Thomas Norris

Celebrating Newman’s beatification, September 2010

Cardinal Newman for Today presents John Henry Newman’s life as a tree. It is rooted in his encounter with the wisdom of antiquity, the discovery of divine revelation and the encounter with the Fathers of the Church. It produced shoots in the living tradition of the church, the faith-life of believers and the reality of doctrine. Its fruits, finally, are visible in the gospel of joy lived out in obedience to God and conscience.

Rev. Thomas Norris, a priest of the Diocese of Ossory (Ireland), is professor of systematic theology at St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth. A member of the International Theological Commission, he has authored ten books, among them The Trinity: Life of God, Hope for Humanity; A Fractured Relationship: Faith and the Crisis of Culture; and numerous articles.

“This book can be wholeheartedly recommended. It is refreshing reading, full of a living theology, written with a flowing style. One can dip into any of its chapters and gain understanding and light for the ongoing journey of faith. Readers will be grateful to Fr. Norris for showing how Newman’s theology is so timely in the contemporary scene.” - Bishop Dr. Philip Boyce, The Irish Catholic

“Norris is no unfamiliar face to Newman studies…. At home with the different theological currents which are alive today, he is one of those who can enrich Newman scholars, both old and new, in his discovery today.” - Fabio Attard, S.D.B., Milltown Studies

Profile
Son of Philip, who was German and owned a stocking factory, and Agnes Neumann who was Czech. John was a small and quiet boy with four sisters and a brother, and was named after Saint John Nepomucene. An excellent student, John early felt drawn to religious life. Seminarian at Budweis, Bohemia in 1813, he studied astronomy and botany in addition to theological topics. Studied theology at Charles Ferdinand University at Prague in 1833.

When time came for his ordination, the bishop was sick; the date for was never reset because Bohemia had an over-abundance of priests. John decided to go to America to ask for ordination and work with emigres. He walked most of the way to France, then took ship for America.

John arrived unannounced in Manhattan in 1836. Bishop John Dubois was happy to see him as there were 36 priests for the 200,000 Catholics in New York and New Jersey. John was ordained on 28 June 1836, and sent to Buffalo. There the parish priest, Father Pax, gave him the choice of the city of Buffalo or of the rural area; John chose the more difficult country area. He stayed in a small town with an unfinished church, and when it was completed, he moved to a town with a log church. There he built himself a small log cabin, rarely lit a fire, slept little, often lived on bread and water, and walked miles to visit farm after remote farm. John's parishioners were from many lands and tongues, but John knew twelve languages, and worked with them all.

Joined the Redemptorists at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1840, taking his vows at Baltimore, Maryland in 1841, the first Redemptorist to do so in the United States. Home missionary in Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Rector of Saint Philomena church in Pittsburgh in 1844. Vice-regent and superior of the Redemptorists in America in 1847. Bishop of Philadelphia in 1852.

Built fifty churches and began building a cathedral. Opened almost one hundred schools, and the number of parochial school students in his diocese grew from 500 to 9,000. Wrote newspaper articles, two catechisms, and many works in German. First American man and first American bishop to be canonized.
