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.
God has created me to do Him some definite
He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to
I have my mission.
I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next.
I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work ... -
John Henry Newman.
