"Truly, it is the indescribable sweetness of contemplation which you give to those who love you. In this you have shown the tenderness of your charity, that when I had no being you made me; and when I strayed away from you, you brought me back again to serve you and commanded me to love you." The Imitation of Christ

Cardinal To Be Beatified...
The decree of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints recognizing a miracle attributed to the intercession of the Venerable John Henry Newman has been officially approved for publication by the Holy Father.
This means that he will become Blessed John Henry Newman.
Another miracle is needed before he can be canonised (declared a saint).
Speculation is now rife as to whether the Beatification ceremony will be in England or Rome.
