Pope Francis signed off on the second miracle attributed to John Henry Newman’s intercession, clearing the way for his canonization into the sainthood.

Last Tuesday on February 12th, Pope Francis met with Cardinal Angelo Becciu, prefect for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. The Holy Father authorized the promulgation of a decree attributing a second miracle to the intercession of Blessed John Henry Newman, the last step in his cause for canonization.

The first miracle attributed to Newman was the complete and scientifically inexplicable healing of Deacon Jack Sullivan from Boston, who suffered from a disabling spinal condition that left him “bent double.” He was beatified by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in 2010 after the recognition of the first miracle.

The second miracle attributed to Newman involves an unnamed young law graduate from the Archdiocese of Chicago who was pregnant with “unstoppable internal bleeding which threatened the life of her child in the womb.” After receiving the diagnosis, she was inspired to pray for the cardinal’s intercession after watching a film about his life on EWTN. After doing so, she was miraculously healed and delivered a perfectly healthy baby.

“She had long been a devotee of Blessed John Henry, and in prayer she directly and explicitly invoked Newman’s intercession to stop the bleeding. The miraculous healing was immediate, complete and permanent, the child was born normally.”

The official date of Newman’s canonization will be announced after Pope Francis holds a meeting with cardinals to formalize the final support for his cause, expected to take place sometime later this year. Oratorian Father Ignatius Harrison, postulator for his cause, is “hoping that it will be sooner rather than later.”

The London-born cardinal was an esteemed 19th century Anglican theologian and poet who founded the Oxford Movement at Oxford University in 1833 to try to return the Church of England to its Catholic roots before he converted to the Faith. His “theology of conscience” has been compared by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to the witness of Saint Thomas More.

    Faustina Samo A young man asked his father to buy him a Lexus. His father answered, ” The only way you’ll get that car is if it drops down from heaven!” So, he decided to make a novena. He asked a Franciscan, “Father, I want to do a novena for a Lexus.” “Who is Alexis?”, the brother asked. The young man said, “It’s a fancy car.” “You don’t need a fancy car” he replied, “you need to let go of your possessions so as to seek God by bringing peace and love in His creation. Do not make a Novena for a Lexus!” Not satisfied with this answer, he went to a Dominican. “Father I want to make a novena for a Lexus.” “What is a Lexus?” the Dominican asked. “It’s a fancy car.” he replied. “My son, you don’t need waste time on fancy cars. Spend your time educating yourself to gain knowledge of Almighty God. Do not make a Novena for a Lexus!” Again disappointed, he went to a Jesuit. “Father, I want to make a Novena for a Lexus.” The Jesuit asked, “What’s a Novena?”

    Faustina Samo “La Bestia è il numero e trasforma in numeri. Dio, invece, ha un nome e chiama per nome. Egli è persona e cerca la persona. Ha un volto e cerca il nostro volto. Ha un cuore e cerca il nostro cuore. Per lui noi non siamo una funzione all’interno della grande macchina mondiale. Sono proprio gli individui che non assolvono delle funzioni quelli che egli predilige. Nome significa possibilità di essere interpellati, significa comunione. Per questo motivo Cristo è il vero Mosè, il compimento ultimo della rivelazione del nome. Egli non porta un nome nuovo, ma fa di più: lui stesso è il volto di Dio, è il nome di Dio, la possibilità di invocare Dio come un Tu, come persona, come cuore”.

    (Joseph Ratzinger – da “Il Dio di Gesù Cristo”)

    ” odjuret är numret och förvandlas till siffror. Gud, i stället, har ett namn och samtal vid namn. Han är person och söker personen. Han har ett ansikte och letar efter vårt ansikte. Han har ett hjärta och söker vårt hjärta. För honom är vi inte en funktion i den stora världen. Det är de individer som inte utför de funktioner som han föredrar. Namn betyder en chans att bli förhörd, betyder nattvarden. Av denna anledning är kristus den sanna moses, den slutliga uppfyllelse av namnet på namnet. Han tar inte med sig ett nytt namn, men gör mer: han själv är guds ansikte, det är guds namn, chansen att åberopa gud som en du, som person, som ett hjärta “.

    (joseph ratzinger – från “jesus kristus”)
