God was his light

For the last few days, off and on as time permitted, we have been watching our Holy Father, Pope Benedict's visit to England and especially his beatification of John Henry Cardinal Newman in Birmingham, England today. We had to tape the beatification ceremony because it began at 4:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Our Sisters have been immersed in the life of Blessed John Henry Newman and his significance for the Church. He was a learned but very gentle man. The following is a link to a wonderful comprehensive article (and video) about him - that reveals in a nutshell who he was and what he accomplished. I hope you will have a look at it.

Get to know Blessed John Henry Newman. He is a piercing light in the darkness of our times.
