Nations pay homage to Newman

By a Special Correspondent pOPE PAUL and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Ramsey, both sent messages to the international Newman Conference in Luxembourg, where Anglicans joined with Catholics in Whit week to celebrate the centenary year of the Apologia.

Canon Tustain Came as the personal representative of Dr. Ramsey; Fr. Donald Allchin came from Pusey House; and with them was Fr. Haliburton, an Anglican studying at the Catholic University of Louvain.

Among the leading Catholic scholars were M. Jean Gunton, the first laymen to address the Vatican Council, who compared Newman's formative influence on the mind of the Church to that of St. Augustine; Mgr. H. Francis Davis; Dr. and Mrs. Sheed; and Miss Meriol Trevor.

Speakers came from a number of countries, including Canada and the U.S.

At a meeting for ecumenical prayer in the country church of Abbe Nicholas Theis, the conference organiser, Fr. Allchin spoke of Newman's influence as a source of developing understanding between Anglicans and Catholics, now that the old antagonisms are yielding to a desire for common thought and action.

Papers read at the conference are to be published, multilingually, in the Newman Studien series, a German venture.

At the invitation of Abbe Theis and the Luxembourg government, conference members saw the dancing procession at Echternach, where the 7th century AngloSaxon missioner St. Willibrord is buried.

They were also invited to the opening of the new concert hall in Luxembourg, where the Grand Duchess attended a performance of the Dream of Gerontius conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent, who dined with the conference the day before.
