This September-September 19th to be exact-Benedict XVI will personally beatify Ven. John Henry Cardinal Newman. Of course this is wonderful news for those of us who have a devotion to Newman, the New Tractarians being some of those. Benedict himself is a Newman fan, which is pretty obvious considering this is the first beatification he has ever done.
We still face a problem here at Notre Dame. Newman has been a huge help in getting us started, but more than ever, the students need to understand that Truth is more than what feels right, or what accomplishes our desires, or what the world says. I hope we can announce our first Tract...it is certainly in the works. I pray through the intercession of Cardinal Newman that God's will be done.
