Fading sepia tone photographs of a stiff Victorian clergyman belie the sheer drive, impact and humanity of Herbert Vaughan. A holy and pious man, and great retreat giver, he was a hugely successful fundraiser and leader - yet a man who wept for his shortcomings while saying Mass. Energetically founding a missionary order, charitable societies and organisations that still run today, including the CTS since 1868, his life was never secure due to a life-long heart weakness. At heart a missionary, a seminary rector, a bishop, a journalist, a gifted and shy communicator - Vaughan has left an impressive legacy of service and love.
Robert O'Neil, is a Mill Hill Missionary and biographer of Vaughan. Based in USA, he spent his first years on mission in Africa.
