The Holy Father has recognised a miracle at Bl. John Henry Newman’s intercession.
The Vatican Press Office confirmed this wonderful news on 13th February 2019.
The date of the Canonization has still to be announced.
“But there are others who look just the same to the world, who in their hearts are very different; they make no great show, they go on in the same quiet ordinary way as the others, but really they are training to be saints in Heaven. They do all they can to change themselves, to become like God, to obey God, to discipline themselves, to renounce the world … true religion is a hidden life in the heart; and though it cannot exist without deeds, yet these are for the most part secret deeds, secret charities, secret prayers, secret self-denials, secret struggles, secret victories.”
