Newman, the Catholic Church and Truth "External to It"

[T]he Catholic Church has ever, in the plenitude of her divine illumination, made use of whatever truth or wisdom she has found in their teaching or their measures; and next, that in particular plaes or times her children are likely to profit from external suggestions or lessons, which have not been provided for them by herself.

John Henry Newman, "Discourse I," The Idea of a University
