Boever, Richard: Saint John Newman His Writings and Spirituality
Father Richard Boever has creatively written a biography of Saint John Neumann in the first person, as if the saint were speaking to the reader. This book invites each of us to accompany Saint John Neumann along his path of faithful discipleship, deepening our own commitment of discipleship in living out our unique vocation in Christ. -- Justin Cardinal Rigali July 15, 2010
Saint John Neumann: His Writings and Spirituality is the great story of a poor immigrant who rose from priest to bishop and became known for his spirituality, patience, and service. He was the first canonized male saint from the United States, laid the foundation of the Catholic school system in the United States, and introduced the Forty Hours devotion. This book will provide a fresh determination and devotion to your personal prayer and reflection.
