Pope approves Beatification of Cardinal Newman! -according to an article at catholic.org
(background information from the article)
"Newman was born in the City of London in 1801. He became a Church of England vicar and led the Oxford movement in the 1830s to draw Anglicans back to their Catholic roots. He converted to the Catholic faith at the age of 44 after a succession of clashes with Anglican bishops made him a virtual outcast from the Church of England."
Cardinal Newman is well known for his infamous quote: To be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant.
For many converts, Cardinal Newman is a beacon, one who leads and lights the way home to the Catholic Church.
