John Henry Cardinal Newman was an Anglican priest and theologian whose studies in history persuaded him to become a Roman Catholic.

Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
            Lead thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home,
            Lead thou me on!
Keep thou my feet! I do not ask to see
            The distant scene; one step enough for me.
—Saint John Henry Newman

England, 1801-1890
