Excerpt from Cardinal Newman on the Inspiration of Scripture
It is well to observe and to remember that the Cardinal himself expressly says, My statements are simply my own, and involve no responsibility of anyone besides myself. At the end of the article, too, with genuine filial obedience and in the Spirit of a true Catholic, he unreservedly sub mits whatever he has written to the judgment of the Holy See. Moreover, as he says, his statements are more of a tentative than dogmatic character; he is more anxious that the question should be satisfactorily answered, than that my own answer should prove to be in every respect the right one. A prince of the Church who writes in-this spirit deserves to be treated with the greatest consideration; vol. V. L138 Cardinal Newman on the Inspiration of Scripture.
