Beatification of Cardinal Newman,...

Just a brief note today regarding the upcoming Beatification of Cardinal Newman, for which the Pope has undertaken a courageous trip to England. Why courageous? Simply because Britain has lost its marbles decades ago, and thus has fallen into secularist limbo as it awaits its inevitable 'Islamicization.' That being said, that's a post for another day.

John Henry Newman remains one of the most influential members of what was then known as the 'Oxford' movement. Simply put a group of Anglican clergy who wished to restore many of England's more traditional Catholic beliefs. Eventually like any other intellectual he had to give assent to what is true and became a Catholic, later a Cardinal no less. His 'Apologia Pro Vita Sua' remains a masterpiece.

A quote I love,.."The gift of inspiration requires the complimentary gift of infallibility." Cardinal Newman.

Cardinal Newman,..pray for us!

Newman's conversion had a monumental impact on religious culture in England. Echoes to this day.

Good points. There is a saint of a few hundred years back - cannot recall his name - who prophetically said that England would return to the true Faith.

It is indeed sad how secularist the culture in England is today.

Saint Faustina calls us to trust in God. God has a plan for Great Britain. Hopefully Great Britain will return to the true faith soon.
