Nine Days with St. John Henry Newman

Cardinal Newman is soon to be our newest saint! By subscribing to this meditation novena, you will experience his canonization first hand.

Written by Paul McCusker, who is a prolific and award-winning writer, we will be following along as he attends Cardinal Newman’s canonization in Rome.

This novena of personal reflections and musings on Cardinal Newman, Rome, and the canonization experience will begin on October 11th and take us all the way through the post-canonization celebrations until Paul returns to the States on October 19th.

See Fr. John Bartunek’s weekly message for 9-24-2019 for more information.

We hope you enjoy this journey!

Each day’s reflection will be live on that day.

Paul McCusker is a writer of many different kinds of things. You may know him from Adventures In Odyssey and Focus On The Family Radio Theatre. Or the Father Gilbert Mysteries. Or the Augustine Institute audio dramas Brother Francis: The Barefoot Saint of Assisi (2018 Audie Award winner) and The Trials of Saint Patrick. Or plays like The First Church of Pete’s Garage and Catacombs. Or C.S. Lewis projects like The Chronicles of Narnia audio dramas or The Annotated Screwtape Letters.  Or the film Beyond The Mask. Or lots of other dramas, novels, scripts, and lyrics. He simply can’t make up his mind what he likes to write.
