At a time when some Catholic churches show decline in numbers, the Oratorians are thriving, and now they are taking over another parish, this time in York. Often this seemingly conservative order appeals to the young. So what is its secret?


Fr Faber was a good man who deserves credit for the pastoral aspects of his priestly life.

The unfairly maligned founder of the Brompton Oratory died 150 years ago.

Delivered on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Frederick William Faber’s death in 1863.

A talk at the London Oratory, January 2013

On St Philip Neri, John Henry Newman, and P.G. Wodehouse

On St Philip Neri, John Henry Newman, J.R.R. Tolkien, and St Therese of Lisieux

The highly esteemed Catholic convert, writer and apologist Ronald Knox, a master of the English language, was well regarded for his gifts both of writing and preaching. This volume combines both skills as it is a collection of his homilies on all the important themes of the spiritual and moral life, and on his favorite saints, men and women of history who were "inflamed with the love of Christ". In his always descriptive, profound and witty style, Knox covers a very wide variety of pastoral themes for Christian living and growth in spiritual perfection. Themes such as "The Fatherhood of God", "The Sermon on the Mount", "The Gifts of God", "The Triumph of Suffering", "The Divine Sacrifice", and dozens more. In his "occasional" sermons on saints and Christian heroes, he shows how these heroes of history struggled with many of the same spiritual battles that modern believers encounter daily, and overcame them with faith, courage, character and virtue. These are the shining witnesses of the truth and charity we all seek to emulate.
This volume contains several sermons of Oratorian interest: “St Philip Neri: I,” “St Philip Neri: II,” and “St Philip Neri: III,” “The London Oratory,” “The Conversions of Newman and Faber,” “The Conversion of Newman: I,” “The Conversion of Newman: II,” “The Conversion of Faber,” “Father Dominic Barberi,” “The Oratorians in London,” and “The Translation of Fr Faber.” Read an excerpt from one of Msgr Knox’s sermons on St Philip Neri:

The well-known Catholic convert and apologist Ronald Knox was highly esteemed for both his gift for writing and preaching. This volume combines both skills as it is a collection of his homilies on his favorite saints, men and women of history who were "inflamed with the love of Christ." In his always descriptive, profound and witty style, Knox shows how these heroes of history struggled with many of the same spiritual battles that modern believers encounter daily, and overcame them with faith, courage, character and virtue. These are the shining witnesses of the truth and charity we all seek to grasp and emulate.

In his vivid style, Ronald Knox tells the stories of a variety of these Christian stalwarts including St. Cecilia, St. George, St. Dominic, St. Albert the Great, St. Thomas More, St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Philip Neri, St. Anselm, St. Joan of Arc, and many more.
