London, 3 September 2017. His Eminence Vincent, Cardinal Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster has published a new book entitled ‘Hope in Action: Reaching Out to a World in Need’.

The book is based on various talks, lectures and broadcasts given by His Eminence between June 2015 and March 2017. As the title suggests, His Eminence reminds us why we need to hold on to hope and how we can offer genuine hope to those who need it most. With questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, this inspiring book will encourage people of all faith backgrounds to come together and work towards a better future for all.

Cardinal Nichols says: ‘I feel that we are at a crucial moment. It seems as though a fairly long winter is slowly beginning to thaw, a winter in which there was a great opposition to the things of faith… But now I sense something of an opportunity… a more evident uncertainty in our society about how we should go about things, a troubled sense that all is far from well… There are indeed moments in which the small print of the messages of hope seemingly disappears from sight… Ours is surely the task of keeping alive these rumours of hope… and of knitting them together so that the far horizons of an eternal hope may never be lost to our sight… My hope is that this book… will encourage you to be strong in your faith and in the works of mercy that spring from it… We must strive to bring God’s hope and mercy to the world. For this is our calling, our God-given wisdom.’

His Eminence is the leader of the Roman Catholic community in England and Wales and a longstanding Constantinian Order chaplain. Cardinal Nichols holds the rank of Bailiff Grand Cross of Justice for Cardinals of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St George.
