Join us via Zoom for this fascinating look at some poems and writings of John Henry Newman. Newman (1801 – 1890) was an English convert to Catholicism, later made a Cardinal. His motto when he became a Roman Catholic was Heart Speaks to Heart. He is the first English person born since the 17th century to be canonised as a saint. It would not be an exaggeration to say that there is no saint – indeed any historical figure – we know so much about. Thousands (literally) of his letters to friends, relatives, the newspapers, are available to read. He was a very ‘public figure’ virtually from his early days at Oxford.
