Newman could give his message in many ways, at length in a book, or in a speech, or even in a phrase. Now he had to see about his Cardinal's coat of arms and chose a motto for it. He chose with care and in four Latin words he gave men a summary of much that he had believed and practised all his life. In the Christian religion you do not just hold by a set of doctrines, but you love the person of Christ. God speaks to you, and you speak to Him. And in all human relationships the same truth holds — you cannot pass on ideas or advice or orders as though you were handing on a parcel. As a priest, a teacher, a friend, Newman had always tried to speak as a person to a person, directly, with insight and with love.
So now there was his motto, for all to see: Cor ad cor loquitur. "Heart speaks to heart."
— Joyce Sugg, John Henry Newman: Snapdragon in the Wall
When John Henry Newman was created Cardinal in 1879, he did not have his own crest designed, but adapted one from the 17th century, which he had inherited from his father. He did not formulate his motto, but altered a phrase from the 17th century - cor cordi loquitur - that seemed so familiar to him that he assumed he had it from the Bible or the Imitation of Christ. He actually remembered it from a letter by Francis de Sales from which he had quoted in 1855 in a public letter on university preaching. It seems that Newman never explained his motto, cor ad cor loquitur, but it is obvious that in his coat of arms, motto and crest complement one another to form one illustration of a fundamental principle of the Christian faith that profoundly shaped Newman’s way of life, his theological thinking and his pastoral endeavours.

In the Most Holy Eucharist
God has created me to do him some definite service; he has committed some work to me which he has not committed to another. I have my mission — I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I have a part in a great work; I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.

“Dear Lord, help me to spread thy fragrance everywhere I go.
Flood my soul with Thy spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine.
Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me but only Thee O Lord!
Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as Thou shinest; so to shine as to be a light to others.
The light O Lord will be all from Thee; none of it will be mine;
It will be Thou, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise Thee in the way Thou dost love best, by shining on those around me.
Let me preach Thee without preaching, not by words but by my example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to Thee.”
—Bl John Henry Cardinal Newman
