Cardinal Newman’s Path to Sainthood?

Peter Jennings explains how the late English Cardinal, Henry Newman, may be created a Catholic saint in the coming months.

No English person has been canonised, except for the martyrs that gave their lives for the Catholic Faith, since the Reformation in the sixteenth century.

But the Venerable John Henry Cardinal Newman, 1801-1890, the best-known English churchman of the 19th century and founder of the English Congregation of the Oratory of St Philip Neri, may be beatified later this year – moving him a step closer to sainthood.
