Pope signs decree recognising second Newman miracle.

Blessed John Henry Newman is headed for sainthood. Pope Francis on Tuesday 12th February authorised the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to issue a decree attributing a miracle to the intercession of the great 19th century convert. The move clears the final hurdle in the cause of Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman’s Cause for canonisation.


Pope Benedict XVI presided over the beatification of Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman in Birmingham, on 19 September 2010, during his historic visit to the United Kingdom. In his homily on that occasion, Benedict praised Newman’s soaring erudition and commitment to the intellectual life in the service of the Church, as well as his pastoral zeal and sensitivity. “The definite service to which Blessed John Henry was called involved applying his keen intellect and his prolific pen to many of the most pressing ‘subjects of the day’,” Pope Benedict said.

Bl. Cardinal Newman to be made a saint this year.
