The Soon-to-Be Beatified John Henry Cardinal Newman Remembered

  • "The scholar and churchman was also a model of deep and enduring friendship," writes Father Juan R. Vélez — Heart speaks to heart. "Someday... he may well earn a new title, that of Doctor amicitiae: Doctor of the Church on Friendship."

  • "The key to Newman's life is his steadfast conviction that the first obligation of conscience is to seek out the truth, no matter what the cost," writes Father Daniel Seward — An unwavering beacon of truth. "Newman approached matters of truth, and questions of right and wrong with a sense of reverence, because he was convinced that a loving God has ordained something for certain in all these matters."

  • "As ever, the philosopher, theologian, poet, priest, and saint is a towering figure who is both loved and despised," writes Jack Valero — A man of endless controversy. "The man the Pope will declare 'blessed' is still able to cut across our society’s values – and to generate stories."
