I haven't yet read all of the Parochial and Plain Sermons, but this one is my favorite so far:

Flat-out brilliant.

Your favorite?

Well, apparently very few here read his sermons. Interesting.

Very few here read anything. Just quietly.

No, but an Oxbridge accent and possible pretensions to sanctity go a long way.

Yup. Like + W. But + W ain't quite a Newman.  :)

Okay, trash bishop Williamson, trash the whole forum.  Nice way to make friends and influence people. 

I find Newman very boring and long-winded.  He spends a thousand words when Thomas Aquinas could say the same thing in a dozen. 

I have nothing against him,  Fr. Vincent Micelli was very fond of Newman but that doesn't mean I have to find him fascinating at this particular point in life or at all. 

If anyone has any valuable contributions to explain why Newman is special in your opinion, it would be appreciated by the great unwashed of us who haven't been struck by Cupid's bow for him.
