    LONDON (CNS) -- Catholic officials are investigating claims that a severely deformed baby was born in a perfectly normal condition after the child's mother prayed to Cardinal John Henry Newman for a miracle. Andrea Ambrosi, the Vatican lawyer in charge of Cardinal Newman's cause for canonization, has revealed in a BBC program to be broadcast Sept. 18 that he hopes the inexplicable healing may be the miracle needed to canonize Cardinal Newman as Britain's next saint. Pope Benedict XVI will beatify Cardinal Newman at a huge open-air Mass in Birmingham's Cofton Park Sept. 19, the last day of his four-day...

    Cardinal Newman, the Anglican cleric whose conversion to Roman Catholicism scandalised Victorian Britain, appeared closer to sainthood today after his case was backed by a senior Vatican official.   Cardinal Newman The head of the Vatican department that examines the causes of saints said that he would like the Cardinal's beatification - the step before canonisation - to take place very soon. His comments suggest that the Vatican is close to attributing a miracle to Cardinal Newman, which means that the 19th century cleric could be beatified before the end of the year. The controversial theologian and writer of the...

    In converting to Catholicism Cardinal Newman lost friends and courted controversy, but the strength of his conscience has roused the passion of the Pope, says, Christopher Howse.The Pope, though invited by the Queen, is coming to Britain with the keen purpose of beatifying John Henry Newman. It will be a treat for him. He has been a fan for 65 years, since his days at seminary. “Newman was not a topic like any other,” the 95-year-old Alfred Läpple, Joseph Ratzinger’s former prefect of studies, remembers of those years. “He was our passion.” Newman much resembles the Pope’s big hero, St...

    On the site of the Cause for John Henry Newman, they draw attention in their "Thought for the Day" for November 14th to Newman's 1831 sermon (given while yet an Anglican), "Ceremonies of the Church" -- later published in his Parochial and Plain Sermons. While it was indeed written within his Anglican period, and thus contains some thoughts which are formed by that specific context, the sermon certainly contains much of broader relevance and is filled with many pertinent insights. The entire sermon may be read here, but here are some substantial excerpts -- which also attempt to keep as...

    Ever played capture the flag? It's a great game. Two teams attempt to capture the opposing team's flag while trying not to lose their own. There's a lot of running, dodging and sneaking. If you play too defensively then you have no chance of catching the other team's flag, but if you all go running after the other team's flag then you will probably lose your own. The key to winning is good teamwork, strategy, a bit of misdirection and somebody who can run really fast. The Catholic Church in England and Wales is currently engaged in an international game...
