Welcome to the new Cardinal Manning Society website. This press is dedicated to the great Cardinal Henry Edward Manning (1808-1892), his thoughts and written works. We will add in some colorful commentary to go along with his words of wisdom in the home page blog. There are pages of the site dedicated to his writings classified by subject. While the storms of modernism hover over the Church, the wisdom of the brilliant Cardinal offers us shelter in the unyielding truth of Christ. While others of his time gave into the ways of the world, Manning was like a castle built upon a rock, that is the Rock that is Christ, who built His only Church upon St. Peter, also named by Christ, Kepha, or Rock. Upon whom will you build your foundation?
‘. . . God knows I would rather stand in the lowest place within the Truth, than in the highest without it. Nay, outside the Truth, the higher the worse. It is only so much more opposition to Truth, so much more propagation of falsehood.’ Cardinal Manning
