Australia's first cardinal knew how to fight

It is possible that Australia's first cardinal - Patrick Moran (1830-1911), was responsible behind the scenes for the definition settled upon by the First Vatican Council for the dogma of papal infallibility in 1870. It was not as a scholar, though, that Moran made his deepest mark. Moran always maintained a high profile and was never afraid of a fight, content to be hated by his opponents. - James Baxter, reviewing Philip Ayres' recent biography
