Excerpt from Men Who Left the Movement: John Henry Newman, Thomas W. Allies, Henry Edward Manning, Basil William Maturin
Movement we can faintly guess, and of the Tractarian Movement Newman was the living soul and inspiring genius. Whatever solid success the High Church party... have obtained since Cardinal Newman's departure (italics mine) has been due to their fidelity to his method and spirit.' Much water has run under the arches of the Bridge Church since that obituary notice was written forty two years ago, and much of the fidelity it speaks of seems to have been washed away, if the teaching of certain anglo-catholic leaders to-day is any criterion of their beliefs as a party.
Since Cardinal Newman's departure.' Like Ban quo's ghost at the feast, the thoughts those words conjure up can never be banished from the minds of those about to celebrate the Movement's centenary. The greatest of its leaders, 'its living soul and inspiring genius, without whose sermons,' Dean Church writes, the Movement would never have been what it was,' left it soon after its first decade had passed and those responsible for its due celebration are on the horns of a painful dilemma.
