Ruth Gledhill on the upcoming beatification of Cardinal Newman

Ruth Gledhill - Times Online - WBLG: John Henry Newman to be saint 'soon'.

A very good post with lots of links and background, and exploring the connection that Pope Benedict has with the thought of Newman. [The link is to a lecture by then Cardinal Ratzinger on the death centenary of Newman.]

[Incidentally, on this my last work day in the Novitiate, we've been painting some hallways. And on the iPod I had Newman's "An essay on the development of Christian doctrine." Playing. Talk about mundane and sublime! :)]
