John Henry Newman, the scholarly son of an English banker, was drawn by his reading to become an Anglican priest. However, as he studied and prayed, Newman grew convinced that Roman Catholicism was the true church founded by Christ. He converted and became a Catholic priest. Pope Leo XIII made him a cardinal, and Newman led many English men and women to Catholicism by his writing and preaching.
