Newman on the Truth in Religion

Today’s ‘Journeying With Newman’ podcast is a reflection from Fortunato Morrone – a parish priest from Italy and teacher of Systematic Theology at the Calabrian Theological Institute.

Fr Morrone looks at the famous “Biglietto” Speech John Henry Newman gave in Rome when he learned he was to be elevated to the rank of Cardinal.

“Newman reminds us that if we deny truth, faith is reduced to a private sentiment, or to a fundamentalist vision without relevance – ineffectual for our societies.

“Consequently, life choices run the risk of being determined by the tastes and modes of public opinion, governed in turn by her ever-changing masters.”
