UK Hearts Opened to Message of Faith and Reason

Interview With Newman Scholar Joseph Pearce

By Genevieve Pollock

NAPLES, Florida, SEPT. 23, 2010 ( During the papal U.K. trip, the hearts of millions were opened to Benedict XVI's words about faith and reason, a message also underscored by the newly beatified Cardinal Newman.

Joseph Pearce, an Englishman and a Catholic convert who has studied and written about Cardinal John Henry Newman, spoke with ZENIT about the Pope's visit to the United Kingdom and the beatification ceremony.

Pearce, currently serving as writer-in-residence and associate professor of literature at Ave Maria University, has published numerous books on the great Christian intellectuals including "Literary Converts," "Tolkien: Man and Myth," "C.S. Lewis and the Catholic Church" and "The Unmasking of Oscar Wilde," all available from Ignatius press.
