Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman
Sermon 3. "Waiting for Christ"


Newman explains that a Christian is one who waits and watches for Christ as a living and personal being, as Creator and Savior, not as an idea, but as on one who is the object of his faith, hope and love. He writes of Christians: “They, then, watch and wait for their Lord, who are tender and sensitive in their devotion towards Him; who feed on the thought of Him, hang on His words; live in His smile, and thrive and grow under His hand. They are eager for His approval, quick in catching His meaning, jealous of His honor.
