The U.K.'s Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman, II.

More snippets from The Heart of Newman, page 110 ...

"Now in the first place, what is faith?"

"... It is assenting to a doctrine as true, which we do not see, which we cannot prove, because God says it is true, who cannot lie. 

"And further than this, since God says it is true, not with His own voice, but by the voice of His messengers, it is assenting to what man says, not simply viewed as a man, but what he is commissioned to declare, as a messenger, prophet, or ambassador from God..."

Way to go, your eminence! :)
