A noted scholar, University teacher and Anglican Pastor, Newman
was a fellow of Oriel College, Oxford and a member of the Oxford Movement.
The focus of Newman's study was the Church of the Apostles and
'the Fathers', great teachers of the early Christian Church. His wide ranging
writings and sermons over many years unfold the mysteries and grandeur of the
faith and the primacy of orthodoxy.
Gradually he felt called to the Roman Catholic Church and was
received in 1845. After Catholic ordination he founded the Oratories of St
Philip Neri in Birmingham and London. These small communities of priests who
live lives dedicated to prayer, liturgy, preaching, teaching and the
intellectual life, reflect the essence of Newman's understanding.
He also founded a University in Dublin and a school in Birmingham,
meanwhile working tirelessly for the poor in Birmingham. Newman's vocation was
to help people realise the demands of thinking and acting with the mind of
Christ and his Church.
In addition to his many doctrinal and spiritual works including
his autobiography, Apologia Pro Vita Sua, he wrote the lyrics to
several popular hyms such as Lead, Kindly Light and Praise
to the Holiest in the Height.
He was made a Cardinal in 1879 and beatified by Pope Benedict XVI
at Cofton Park, Birmingham on 19th September 2010.

shall do His work ... - John Henry Newman.
