Newman cause website

Br Lewis Berry, of the Oratory, Birmingham, has sent me news of a website dedicated to The Cause for the Canonisation of the Ven John Henry Newman.

There is a daily 'thought' from Newman's writings, as well as news, and regular features: extracts from Newman's writings, and other articles connected with the Newman and the Cause. Today's entry chimes in with something that I have been discussing recently with others, especially in relation to adoration:
We cannot understand Christ’s mercies till we understand His power, His glory, His unspeakable holiness … that is, until we first fear Him.
From the sermon Christian Reverence (1831)

That link, by the way, is from the excellent resource "Newman Reader".
