"Becoming Catholic: a life-changing adventure of faith." A woman tells her story

"What started as a modest curiosity quickly grew into a fully-fledged obsession. The more I discovered, the more I understood that I was encountering something extraordinary… At some point, Catholicism ceased to be solely an intellectual pursuit to understand and became something I believed and loved in all my capacity…As Saint John Henry Newman once stated, ‘To be deep in history, is to cease to be Protestant.’”

"What a great honour and expression of love it is to receive Our Lord in the Eucharist and ‘recognize in this bread what hung on the Cross, and in this chalice what flowed from His side.’”

Beautiful!


This caught my eye…

As Saint John Henry Newman once stated, ‘To be deep in history, is to cease to be Protestant.’”

It’s a well known quote, but is not exactly as I recall it.

I could easily check with google (or even in my forty year old copy of the Apologia - with more difficulty), but I’ll throw it out there to the Newman enthusiasts.

Am I right that there’s a small error in the quote, or is my memory playing tricks?

From memory only, please - we can all use google. Bonus points - finding it in a hard copy of the book.
