Speaking plainly and practically in this volume, B. W. Maturin shares a wealth of insights on the challenging topic of discipline. He begins by discussing “knowledge of self” as the foundation to build upon, discussing how “the knowledge of self is as necessary for the spiritual life as is the knowledge of God. It is at once a condition and an effect of this knowledge.” Maturin then moves into the bulk of the work where he discusses a variety of self-disciplines—including discipline of the will, the mind, the affections, and the body—as he encourages and challenges readers to grow in these areas.

Sermons and Sermon Notes

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Published posthumously by friends of Maturin, this volume contains manuscripts of some of the best sermons he gave in later years. Maturin was notoriously difficult to record accurately when he preached, and his friend Wilfrid Ward was crucial to compiling the complete texts in this volume. Ward “was so closely in tune with Father Maturin’s thoughts and modes of expression that he was able to see and bring out the meaning of many obscure passages [of the sermons].” Maturin often wrote out three or four versions of what he would preach, and Ward includes some of these drafts as well. Sermon topics include “The Mystery of Suffering,” “On Prayer,” “Christianity and the Modern World,” “Sin,” “Sorrow Turned into Joy,” and “St. Theresa.”

About B. W. Maturin

Basil William Maturin (1847–1915) was an Irish Anglican priest and writer from Dublin. He was educated at Trinity College, and in 1876, he moved to Philadelphia, where he grew in attraction to the Catholic Church until he joined in 1897. He was ordained into Catholic priesthood by his best friend a year later and was soon appointed as the Catholic chaplain to the University of Oxford. He lost his life in the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915, and was last seen alive standing on one of the decks with hand upraised, giving the Extreme Unction—a sacramental prayer for the dying. Maturin was also the author of Practical Studies on the Parables of Our Lord.
