    On the UK Trip "The Old Nations of Europe Have a Christian Soul" VATICAN CITY, SEPT. 22, 2010 ( Here is a translation of the address Benedict XVI gave today at the general audience in St. Peter's Square. * * * Dear Brothers and Sisters, Today I would like to speak about my apostolic journey to the United Kingdom, which God enabled me to carry out over the past few days. It was an official visit and, at the same time, a pilgrimage to the heart of the history and the present of a people rich in culture and faith,...

    Pope Benedict XVI today announced the beatification of Cardinal John Henry Newman. The declaration means that the Anglican vicar, who shocked Victorian England by converting to Catholicism, will be given the title 'Blessed'. It also puts Newman just one stage away from becoming the first English saint in about 40 years.

    A panel of theological consultors agreed unanimously that the inexplicable healing of an American man who was "bent double" by a severe spinal disorder came as a result of praying to Newman for a miracle, according to sources. Their decision was the final hurdle before Pope Benedict XVI can declare him "Blessed". snip... A panel of medical experts had earlier concluded there was no scientific explanation for the healing.

    LONDON, September 3, 2008 ( - A biographer of John Henry Cardinal Newman has refuted the claims of an English homosexualist activist that Newman was a closeted homosexual. Fr. Ian Ker, a priest and biographer of Cardinal Newman, told the Weekend Australian yesterday that homosexualists were using Newman's close friendship with another priest as a political ploy. "Clearly" Fr. Kerr said, Newman "did love his dear friend" but he called it "ridiculous" to claim, a century after the fact, that they were homosexuals who lived "as husband and wife." "There is no evidence for that whatsoever, and everything he...

    Other Anglican bishops, indeed including some Primates, have violated our provincial boundaries and caused great suffering and contributed immeasurably to our difficulties in solving our problems and in attempting to communicate for ourselves with our Anglican brothers and sisters. We have been repeatedly assured that boundary violations are inappropriate under the most ancient authorities and should cease. The Lambeth Conferences of 1988 and 1998 did so. The Windsor Report did so. The Dromantine Communiqué did so. None of these assurances has been heeded. The Dar es Salaam Communiqué affirms the principle that boundary violations are impermissible, but then sets conditions...

    This reading on the Assumption of Mary is taken from the first homily of St. John Damascene on the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. “But even though, according to nature, your most holy and happy soul is separated from your most blessed and stainless body and the body as usual is delivered to the tomb, it will not remain in the power of death and is not subject to decay. For just as her virginity remained inviolate while giving birth, when she departed her body was preserved from destruction and only taken to a better and more divine tabernacle,...

    From A Letter Addressed to the Rev. E. B. Pusey, D.D. on Occasion of his Eirenicon Pages 31-62 As regards the Blessed Virgin then, I shall postpone the question of devotion for a while, and inquire first into the doctrine of the undivided Church (to use your controversial phrase), on the subject of her prerogatives.1.What is the great rudimental teaching of Antiquity from its earliest date concerning her? By "rudimental teaching," I mean the primâ facie view of her person and office, the broad outline laid down of her, the aspect under which she comes to us, in the writings...
