Father John writes:

Today, (Sunday), Cardinal John Henry Newman is being canonised in Rome. I am sure you all know about him, how, after his studies of the writings of the early Christian Church, he was drawn to become a Catholic.

Although his experience of Church was very English, his thinking was way ahead of his time, and today his reflections are studied all over the world. We are proud of our new saint.

Pope Benedict XVI beatified him in Birmingham nine years ago (I was there!)
