Saint John Henry Newman
.
On Sunday 13th October, Pope Francis canonised Cardinal John Henry Newman as a Saint. He was born on 21st February 1801, the first of six children. He was ordained an Anglican priest but converted to Catholicism. He was received into the Church by an Italian Passionist Fr Dominic Barberi on 9th October 1845. In addition to the schools associated with him in England, he founded a boarding school for boys in Dublin at the side of the Oratory Church [St. Stephen’s Green], and also University College Dublin. He wrote extensively in his latter years and among his writings are the prayer below and the hymn ‘Lead, Kindly Light’. He died on 11th August 1890.
Lord, may you support us all the day long ’till the shades lengthen,
and evening falls, the busy world is hushed, the fever of life is over and our work is done. Then in your mercy, Lord, may you grant us
a safe lodging, a holy rest and peace at last. Amen.
Saint John Henry Newman, pray for us.
