Translated, with an Introduction, by Father Nicholas Gregoris. Thanks to the skill of Father Gregoris, the publication in English translation of Giovanni Velocci's important work Prayer in Newman will bring before a wider audience a significant study. In a few pages are drawn together from Newman's sermons and meditations, both Anglican and Catholic, his reflections on the life of prayer. Moreover, this little work reveals Newman himself to be a masterful teacher of the art of prayer and - most important - to be essentially a man of prayer. In Father Velocci's memorable phrase, "prayer became the preferred occupation of Newman."

As the cause for Cardinal Newman's canonization continues to advance, this timely translation,will serve to highlight the central fact that we find in Newman's inner life that profound longing for union with God in prayer which is surely the hallmark of saints.

-The Very Reverend Paul Chavasse of the Birmingham Oratory - Postulater of the cause for the Canonization of Cardinal Newman.
