Newman - miracle promulgated

Earlier today, the Holy Father authorised the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to promulgate a miracle attributed to the Venerable Servant of God, John Henry Newman.

The Westminster Diocesan website carries an article: Pope Benedict XVI recognises Newman miracle in which Archbishop Nichols is quoted:
“I am delighted to learn this news, which will be warmly welcomed by Catholics around the world. To have Cardinal Newman among the Blessed is an occasion of great thankfulness to the Lord and of great pride to those associated with him in Birmingham and in Oxford. I am sure he will help us greatly in the task of protecting the Faith amidst the difficulties he foresaw so clearly.”
There is also an article in the Daily Mail by Simon Caldwell: Pope Benedict clears way for Cardinal John Newman to become first English saint in 40 years
