Cardinal Newman

There's hope for England!!
I see from Catholic World News that the cause for the Beatification of Cardinal Newman has taken another step forward. The Vatican has given preliminary approval to the authenticity of a miracle attributed to Cardinal Newman’s intercession. This will now be studied by theologians for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. If the theologians give their approval, the case will go to the full Congregation for approval.

Beatification, which confers the title Blessed, requires proof of one miracle attributed to the posthumous intercession of the candidate, usually a medically inexplicable cure. Sainthood requires two such miracles.
