Pius XII on the Anniversary of Newman’s Conversion

Yesterday was the anniversary of Newman's conversion to Catholicism when he was received into "what I now realise to be the one fold of the redeemer". The website for the cause for the canonisation of John Henry Cardinal Newman has posted a letter from Pope Pius XII to Cardinal Griffin marking the 1945 centenary celebrations. The short letter quotes both Juvenal and Lactantius, and celebrates the ancient link between Britain and Rome.
