The exciting news of the the day does not come from Pennsylvania, but from Rome, where it was announced that John Henry Cardinal Newman will be beatified. A leader of the Oxford Movement, a catholic reform movement in the Anglican Church, Newman later converted to Catholicism and founded the Birmingham Oratory. He is seen by most Anglican converts to Catholicism as a spiritual forebear, and his writings, especially his Apologia Pro Vita Sua , have helped bring many across the Tiber. Those interested in reading his works can consult this website or Google Books .
