Recovering a Catholic Philosophy of Elementary Education
by Curtis L. Hancock

A book long-awaited, this text examines elementary education in light of Catholic philosophy,
revealing many of the unexamined presuppositions that underlie various forms of education
practiced today. Professor Hancock shows that a truly Catholic philosophy of education is
capable of understanding and responding to these currents clearly, critically and profitably.
This work is ideal for use in philosophy of education courses at the graduate and
undergraduate levels, as well as serving as a source-book for the in-service programs for
Catholic elementary school teachers, indeed the first book of its kind in English in more than
four decades

Giovanni Velocci, C.SS.R.

Translated, with an Introduction, by
Rev. Nicholas L. Gregoris

Thanks to the skill of Father Nicholas 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.

The Reverend Giovanni Velocci, a priest of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (popularly known as the Redemptorists), is
a professor of Church history and the history of theology.  He is also widely acknowledged as a preeminent Newman scholar, with
numerous works published in this field.  Of particular interest to readers of the present volume is his book  Newman: Il Coraggio
della Verità (Newman: The Courage of the Truth).

The Reverend Nicholas L. Gregoris, a member of the Priestly Society of the Venerable John Henry Cardinal Newman, holds a
bachelor’s degree in theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University and a licentiate and doctorate in theology from the Pontifical
Theological Faculty of the Marianum in Rome.  He is the author of many articles, as well as “The Daughter of Eve Unfallen”:  Mary in
the Theology and Spirituality of John Henry Newman (Newman House Press).

"The Daughter of Eve Unfallen"
Mary in the Theology and Spirituality of
John Henry Newman

Rev. Nicholas L. Gregoris, S.T.D.

This book focuses on Mary's cooperation in the work of salvation, with particular attention to what
Cardinal Newman has to say on her role of mediation in her son's redemptive sacrifice, using his
writing and theological principles to help see the best - and truly traditional way - of both
understanding and using these titles. A reference point for all who will in the future write on the
subject of Our Lady, especially on her cooperation in the work of redemption.
