On this day in 1889
Bishop William Bernard Ullathorne, O.S.B., went to his reward. He is not particularly well-known now, although many people have heard of one of his ancestors. I am posting about him because he not only went out of his way to defend the Venerable when the latter was under attack, but wrote the following quote:
“I felt annihilated in his presence, there is a saint in that man.”- Bishop Ullathorne on Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O.
