In September 2010 Benedict XVI visited Great Britain. It was a historic moment for the whole country, for the Catholic Church, and for the community of CL. In particular, the Pope invited everybody to look at the figure at the figure of John Henry Newman, especially because Newman was “a modern man, who lived the whole problem of modernity”, and because he saw that all of us have a lot to learn from Newman’s three conversions. As a response to this invitation, we decided to prepare an exhibition on John Henry Newman, that was displayed at the Meeting of Rimini 2010.
The aim of the exhibition is to trace Newman's threefold journey of conversion by proposing a biographical and thematic path, from which it emerges that conscience was the driving force of Newman’s journey towards the certainty of truth: ex umbris et imaginibus in veritatem (“out of shadows and illusions into truth”).
The Newman exhibition is now currently being displayed around the UK (and Sweden) and is available for (free) hiring for communities and parishes.
