Biografia breu
Richard Challoner, (born September 29, 1691, Lewes, Sussex, England—died January 12, 1781, London), leader of English Roman Catholics whose revision of the Douai-Reims version of the Bible became the authorized edition for English Catholics.

Challoner was educated at the English College at Douai, France, where he was ordained (1716) and appointed vice president and professor of theology (1720). In 1730 he was sent to London, where the Roman Catholic community was small and harassed, and in 1741 was consecrated titular bishop of Debra. In 1758 he became vicar apostolic of the London district, where he increased the number of converts to Catholicism, founded the Benevolent Society for the Relief of the Aged and Infirmed Poor, and strengthened Roman Catholics against the persecution prevalent in 18th-century England.

Challoner was the author of many books, including The Garden of the Soul (1740), a popular manual of prayer, and Meditations for Every Day of the Year (1753), frequently reprinted and used by non-Catholics. His carefully researched historical works included Britannia Sancta, an account of the lives of traditional British saints (1745), and British Martyrology (1761). Challoner’s purpose in his revision of the Douai-Reims version (1749–50) was to make the Bible more readable by modernizing the language and to correct earlier errors.



I. Make choice of a proper time and place for recollection; and shut the door of thy heart as much as possible against the world with all its distracting cares and affections. II. Place thyself in the presence of thy God, representing his incomprehensible Majesty to thyself by a lively faith, as fining heaven and earth, or as residing with all his attributes in the very centre of thy soul. Prostrate thyself in spirit before him, to adore this sovereign Lord; ll1uke an entire offering of thyself to him humbly begging his pardon for all thy past treasons against him. III. Implore, with fervour and humility, his light and grace, that the great truths of the gospel may make a deep impression on thy soul, that thou mayest effectually learn to fear and love all! IV. Read the chapter for the day leisurely, and with serious attention, giving thy soul time to digest what thou art reading; and pause more particularly on those points which allect thee most.… (més)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him.
8 He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light.
9 That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name.
13 Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
