A Newman link for your collection

Traipsing around the wonder that is the Catholic blogosphere yesterday I came upon Newman Reader with a good collection of his works, biographical information and more. The many works of John Henry Cardinal Newman are broken down into his Anglican and Catholic periods and include his major works as well as several sermons. For someone looking to embellish his or her Catholic understanding with some wisdom from this Catholic hero this is a good place to start. From his Catholic Encylopedia entry:

His biglietto speech, equal to the occasion in grace and wisdom, declared that he had been the life-long enemy of Liberalism, or “the doctrine that there is no truth in religion, but that one creed is as good as another”, and that Christianity is “but a sentiment and a taste, not an objective fact, not miraculous.”

H/T to Mike Aquilina.
