The Canonisation of Blessed John Henry Newman
We remember today, Blessed John Henry Newman who will be canonised this morning in Rome. Blessed John Henry Newman will be the first English person who has lived since the 17th century, officially recognised as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. Further information on his canonisation and other events can be found at www.newmancanonisation.com.
Today we pray for prisoners and their dependants. The day begins the ecumenical week of activity called Prisons Week. We pray that we may never forget that all people, whoever they are and whatever they may have done, are loved by God and called to be sharers in his Kingdom.
