Description

St John Henry Newman

Canonised 13th October 2019

Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was a man of great intellect, a philosopher, theologian, poet, preacher, teacher and priest noted for his great charity and holiness.  A holiness born of faithfulness to prayer and frequent reception of the Sacraments – “the pledges of grace – keys which open up the treasure house of mercy” for a life dedicated to the love and service of God.

He was ordained a Church of England priest in 1825.  He subsequently led the Oxford Movement and converted to Catholicism in 1845.  After studying in Rome, he was ordained a priest and became an Oratorian, a spiritual son of St Philip Neri.

He was made a Cardinal in 1879.  He turned down the customary move to Rome and lived in Birmingham until his death.

The first miraculous healing at the intercession of Cardinal Newman took place in 2001 and was of an American who after suffering a spinal disorder saw a television programme about the Cardinal and subsequently prayed to him.  This led to Newman’s Beatification by Pope Benedict XVI on the 19th September 2019  at  Birmingham.

A second miracle took place in 2013 when a pregnant woman, a long-time devotee of Newman, was inexplicably healed of a life-threatening internal bleeding. This has led to the Canonisation of Bl John Henry Newman on the 13th October by Pope Francis in St Peter’s Square, Rome  in front of thousands with millions able to watch on television throughout the world
