Newman on Wesley

"...if you wish to find [among the Anglicans] the shadow and the suggestion of the supernatural qualities which make up the notion of a Catholic Saint, to Wesley you must go, and such as him”

-John Henry Newman

from: Certain Difficulties felt by Anglicans in Catholic Teaching, vol. 1, pp. 88-91
(though, truth be told, Newman then expresses his distaste for Wesley's doctrines and his claims of inner assurance, but there it is).
