Keeping Fast and Festival

BLESSED JOHN HENRY NEWMAN

(1801-1890)

 

This season's words from our saints are taken from one of John Henry Newman's meditations on Easter Sunday -- a feast the great English preacher called "the child of sorrow," in a sermon drawing from Ecclesiastes 3:4. Newman, a native of London and a convert to Roman Catholicism from the Church of England, was created a cardinal by Pope Leo XIII in 1879 and, on September 19, 2010, beatified in a ceremony in Birmingham England by Pope Benedict XVI. His canonization as a saint by Rome hinges upon proof of a second major miracle attributable to his intercession.
