THE REVEREND JOHN FURNISS COLLECTION [6 BOOKS] REVEREND JOHN FURNISS C.S.S.R. Reverend John Furniss was a well-known children's missioner, born near Sheffield, England in 1809. He was educated at Sedgley Park, Oscott, and Ushaw College, where he became a priest in 1834. "Suffer little children to come to me" was his motto. He became a professed member of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer at St. Trond, Belgium, 1851, and afterwards gave missions in England and Ireland; but from 1851 until his death he devoted himself wholly to giving missions to children. He was the founder of children's missions and "the children's Mass", and by his writings systematized the philosophy of religious training. These missions lasted sometimes three weeks, and were given not only to school-children, but to working boys and girls. His maxim was that "nothing so disgusted children as monotony", and therefore he had the prayers at Mass and the Rosary sung to simple airs, and his sermons seldom lasted more than twenty minutes. He entered fully into the mode of thought of the child-mind, and, speaking quietly but with great dramatic power from a platform, he always riveted their attention. He was a wonderful story-teller, seldom moving to laughter but often to tears. He spent his spare time writing books for children which, though written with the utmost simplicity of language, are models of good English.
