Netting Fishes

Fr John Twist SJ was the Chaplain at Stonyhurst, and regulars at St Peter’s will be familiar with his laconic, intelligent and quietly humorous style. Each homily is a bite-size piece of wisdom, relating a biblical passage to everyday life…each would be quick enough to read on the train or bus, or before bed time. Filled with realism laced with humour, these ‘thoughts for the day’ provide much to ponder on.


Francis, Pope of Good Promise

By Jimmy Burns OS 71, acclaimed biography of Pope Francis.

From the moment Pope Francis stepped on to the balcony of St Peter’s Basilica for the first time, a global audience sensed that not only the Catholic Church but the world at large could be entering a new spiritual, political and social age. The biography is the product of diligent investigation across a wide range of official and independent sources – a measured, objective portrait of a man who, in circumstances that he neither sought nor foresaw, found himself handed the highest office at a time of crisis not just for the Church but for long established institutions worldwide from banks to political parties.

Hard cover

Gentlemen Philosophers

HJA Sire’s (OS 58-68) well researched and readable account of Stonyhurst’s role providing Catholic university education. For over 50 years students followed courses of development by the Jesuit community for degrees awarded by London University.  The ‘Philosophers’ were drawn from an elite of the Catholic gentry. Their life outside studies – hunting, shooting and elegant entertainment – is vividly drawn.


Glory Be To God
St Omers Press, second edition, with minor corrections.

”Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute final way”.  These words of Pedro Arrupe SJ’s summarise the theme of this book: prayer as the right and normal expression of our being.
