Cardinal Newman died on August 11, 1890 at the ageof 89.Although his mind remained lucid tothe end, his body declined to the point that in the summer of thatyear it became evident to all that the end was near.

However, on the evening of August 9 he staged a remarkable rallywhich was recorded by Father William Neville, his secretary andcaregiver in his final years. Not recognizing his youthful step he wassurprised when Newman entered his room, and he was-unbent,erect to the full height of his best days in the fifties; he was withoutsupport of any kind. His whole carriage was, it may be said, soldierlike,and so dignified; and his countenance was most attractive tolook at; even great age seemed to have gone from his face, and withit all careworn signs; his very look conveyed the cheerfulness andgratitude of his mind, and what he said was so kind, his voice wasquite fresh and strong, his whole appearance was that of power,combined with complete calm... [Ward,The Life of CardinalNewman, vol.2,537]

At his request he was buried in the grave of his friend AmbroseSt. John. On the memorial were engraved the words Ex umbriset imaginibus in veritatem-from shadows and illusions into truth.All of his life Newman had been a soldier for Christ-prepared todo battle for the truth. This is the story of his spiritual journey;emerging from the shadows into the fullness of truth.
