I lay it down as a fundamental canon that a sermon to be effective must be imperfect.
John Henry Newman
To mark the publication of Sean Hewitt's Book Tongues of Fire - Fr Peter recorded an extended version of the homily he prepared for the Third Sunday of Easter 26 April 2020. In it he introduces Sean's work in the context of his associations with this neighbourhood. He drew attention to the way in which he combines his attention to nature with attention to his personal story. Peter then goes on to draw parallels with Sean's gift and a richer understanding of the sacramentalism that is at the heart of a truly catholic approach life.
The texts of some of the homilies preached at Blessed John Henry Newman Church are given below
