- Do not fear to be thought overstrict; do not fear to be reproached as extreme; do not fear to be in a minority. Cardinal Manning.
WelcomeWelcome to the new Cardinal Manning Wordpress Site. This press is dedicated to the great Henry Edward Cardinal Manning (1808-1892), his life, thought and work. We will add in some colorful commentary to go along with his words of wisdom in the home page part of the blog. There are pages of the site dedicated to passages of 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?
Thoughts of the Cardinal- The Reformation"The Reformation has brought on a most perplexing problem- how are we to deal with persons having the Christian theology without participating in the continuity of the Christian Church." Cardinal Manning
The Moral Obligation to Seek the TruthWhensoever the light comes within the reach of our sight, or the voice within the reach of our ear, we are hound to follow it, to inquire and to learn; for we are answerable, not only for what we can do, by absolute power now, but for what we might do if we used all the means we have; and therefore, whensoever the Church of God comes into the midst of us, it lays all men under responsibility; and woe to that man who says, ' I will not read; I will not hear; I will not listen; I will not learn; ' and woe to those teachers who shall say, ' Don't listen, don't read, don't hear; and therefore, don't learn.' Cardinal Manning
