Blessed Cardinal Newman was born in London on February 21, 1801. He was not only an exceptional thinker, theologian and writer but a holy priest and the founder of the Oratory of St. Phillip Neri in England.
God is glorified in his saints and pleased to reward prayers made through their intercession. We invite you to pray the following prayer for specific intentions:
God our Father, you granted to your servant Blessed John Henry Newman wonderful gifts of nature and of grace, that he should be a spiritual light in the darkness of this world, an eloquent herald of the Gospel, and a devoted servant of the one Church of Christ.
With confidence in his heavenly intercession, we make the following petition: [here make your petition]
For his insight into the mysteries of the kingdom, his zealous defence of the teachings of the Church, and his priestly love for each of your children, we pray that he may soon be numbered among the Saints.
We are also pleased to announce the release of A University Education for the 21st Century: The Opening of the American Mind by Fr. Juan R. Velez. The book is available through Amazon.
