"The more of Newman I read, the more clearly I understood that he was one of the three or four most important theological influences on the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council. I came to see how his work represents, in many ways, the first and most notable attempt to place Catholic thought in dialogue with the challenge and promise of the Enlightenment."
