With God in Russia

Recently, a friend gave me this book to read and as soon as I started it, I just couldn’t put it down. I was greatly moved by the sincere humility and love of God that you can sense in each word poured onto the page.

John Henry Newman: His Inner Life

He was at the forefront of his time, and, if I may say so, restored English Catholicism, at the time hampered by fear and anonimity, to its former status...
