Augustine Hoey, by A Pinchin and G Jolly


Trembling on the Edge of Eternity. Fr Augustine Hoey  - A Biographic Memoir, by A Pinchin & G Jolly. This volume, now in its second edition, tells the remarkable story of Fr Augustine Hoey, a Catholic priest with his roots in the missionary tradition of Anglo-Catholicism, in both the UK and Africa.  Written to mark his 100th birthday this book draws on the personal recollections and writings of Fr Hoey as well as from those who have met him and, in many case, had their lives changed by him. Through various moments of drama, such as surviving a wartime bomb and witnessing the tightening grip of apartheid in South Africa, Fr Hoey’s active life has concealed an inner desire for contemplation and intercessory prayer. After becoming a Roman Catholic in the 1990’s his work, as confessor, spiritual guide and preacher was based at Westminster Cathedral.  At the age of 98, he moved to Walsingham to fulfil the vocation he felt as an undergraduate on his first visit to the Shrine.
