Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman

“I want a laity, not arrogant, not rash in speech, not disputatious, but men who know their religion, who enter into it, who know just where they stand, who know what they hold and what they do not, who know their creed so well that they can give an account of it, who know so much of history that they can defend it”
— Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman, as quoted by Pope Benedict XVI on the occasion of Newman's beatification, Cofton Park, Sunday, 19 September 2010 (source)
