John Henry Newman’s spiritual autobiography, Apologia Pro Vita Sua, is widely recognized as a classic of religious literature. Chronicling his conversion from Anglicanism to Catholicism, it explores the arguments and discoveries that convinced the Anglican churchman to cross the Tiber. In today’s episode, we share the second half of a talk Bishop Barron gave on the book and its influence.

    These two re-podcasts were awesome. They reference two other podcasts in the series on Cardinal Newman. Where might they be found? Any chance they will also become re-podcasts? Very interesting subject, speaking from the POV of a convert whose journey went through Westminster on the way to Rome. (I took the Via Chesterton to the Tiber…)

    Thank you, and God bless you!
