Newman: Beato subito
The prospect of beatifying John Henry Cardinal Newman is exciting if for no other reason than merely the thought that some may actually pick up his works and read them, and in them find a great many answers to our current struggles within the Church. It is also comforting to hear that the current Holy Father is keen on canonizing this great (future doctor?) of the Church.
