Newman Littlemore

Fr. Hermann Geissler FSO

Dear brothers and sisters,


Today we celebrate the Memorial of Blessed John Henry Newman. As we know, after having read an anthology of this great English convert, Mother Julia said to the sisters around her: “My soul has found a brother”. Newman is very close to us, he is our brother, who intercedes for us and sustains us on our journey of faith. Let us recall one thought of Newman on faith. In his major work, “Grammar of Assent”, Newman describes how we come to give an assent to the truth, to the natural and to the supernatural truth. In this book he elaborates the distinction between notional assent and real assent.

Bl. John Henry Newman to W.J. Copeland, 10th March 1846

Littlemore is approximately three miles away from the centre of Oxford and was a hamlet in Newman’s time. When Newman became Vicar of the University Church of St. Mary’s in 1828, he accepted along with this task, the pastoral care of Littlemore which had been part of the parish for many centuries.

Newman, Teacher of Conscience

Fr. Hermann Geissler FSO

On the 19th of September 2010 Pope Benedict XVI beatified the famous English theologian John Henry Newman. During his Christmas audience with the Roman Curia, on the 20th of December 2010, the Holy Father spoke again of Newman and his affinity to our times, highlighting his understanding of conscience. As the Pope explains, the word conscience has come to signify in contemporary thought: „that for moral and religious questions, it is the subjective dimension, the individual, that constitutes the final authority for decision. … Newman’s understanding of conscience is

We know, my brethren, that in the natural world nothing is superfluous, nothing incomplete, nothing independent; but part answers to part, and all details combine to form one mighty whole. Order and harmony are among the first perfections which we discern in this visible creation; and the more we examine into it, the more widely and minutely they are found to belong to it.

Dear Newman Friends!

When Pope Francis gave an audience to the media representatives three days after his election as the successor of Peter, he said: “How I would like a Church which is poor and for the poor!“ (16 March 2013). In his programmatic Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium he mentions the reasons for his choice: “Each individual Christian and every community is called to be an instrument of God for the liberation and promotion of the poor,

Sr. Mary-Birgit Dechant, F.S.O.


Our faith in Christ, who became poor, and was always close to the poor and the outcast, is the basis of our concern for the integral development of society’s most neglected members” (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, N. 186).

These words of Pope Francis in his Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii gaudium can rightly and easily be applied to the work and life of Blessed John Henry Newman and especially to his work among the poor of Littlemore. Using Newman’s

My God, I adore you for taking on yourself the charge of sinners; of those, who not only cannot profit you, but who continually grieve and profane you. You have taken on yourself the office of a minister, and that for those who did not ask for it. I adore you for your incomprehensible condescension in ministering to me. I know and feel, O my God, that you might have left me, as I wished to be left, to go my own way, to go straight forward
