Fr John Twist SJ is 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.
This is the second edition of former teacher, Tom Muir’s history of Stonyhurst College.

This is an important and highly readable work of considerable appeal not only to Stonyhurst’s immediate constituency but also to the Catholic community, and anyone with an interest in Catholic history and education.
