Overview

Excerpt from Modern Rome in Modern England: Being Some Account of the Roman Catholic Revival, in England During the Nineteenth Century

On July 13, 1852, John Henry Newman, preaching in the Synod of Oscott, described in very eloquent terms the extraordinary rate of progress effected by the Roman Catholic Church in England since the passing of the Emancipation Act of 1829. He took for his text the words, 'Arise, make haste, my Love, my Dove, my Beautiful One, and come. For the winter is now past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers have appeared in our land.' In this sermon Newman dwelt lovingly on the transformation scene observed in England since the repeal of the penal laws. The dark days were gone, never to return; and before his Church in these islands lay unfolded the prospects of a brilliant future.
