Blessed John Henry Newman is to be declared Saint John Henry Newman by Pope Francis, Sunday 13th October.  Born 21st February 1801. Eldest of six. Became Vicar of St. Mary’s, Oxford. Exerted a profound spiritual influence on the Church of England. His study of the early Church led him progressively towards Catholicism. He became a Catholic in 1845. 

“From the time I became a Catholic…I have been in perfect peace and contentment. I never had any doubt. I was not conscious on my conversion of any change, intellectual or moral, wrought in my mind….I had not more fervour. But it was like coming into port after a rough sea; and my happiness on that score remains to this day without interruption”      (Apologia Pro Vita Sua. c. 5).


Perhaps you have already had prayers answered through the intercession of Bl. John Henry?

Blessed John Henry Newman, please pray for us !
