The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

A Picture Is Worth.....

c.1843- "On the whole, all parties will agree that, of all the existing systems, the present communion of Rome is the nearest approximation to the Church of the Fathers..... Did St. Athanasius or St. Ambrose come suddenly to life, it cannot be doubted what communion he would take to be his own."

-John Henry Cardinal Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, pg. 97

2006- Really, Your Eminence? What would St. Athanasius say about this scene?

Newman made some comments late in his life that implied he certainly had doubts about his earlier position after the near Deification of the papacy in 1870. I cannot remember where they are recorded - can you illuminate me?
