O weary Champion of the Cross, lie still:
Sleep thou at length the all-embracing sleep:
Long was thy sowing day, rest now and reap:
Thy fast was long, feast now thy spirit’s fill.
- Christina Rossetti, ‘Cardinal Newman’

From blog member John Boyden
Possible miracle through Cardinal Newman’s intercession
One of the guiding lights of early Anglo-Catholicism, a gentleman who was an apostle of English ‘tolerant conservatism’, doctrinally sound and intellectual without fanaticism

I dare say that like Lord Acton and other Catholic classical liberals he would have shared this blog’s disagreements with both the Jansenist- and fascist-tinged traditionalists and the Novus Ordo neocons.
