Pope urges compassion in elevating 13 likeminded cardinals

  Pope urges compassion in elevating 13 likeminded cardinals Pope Francis added 13 new cardinals to the top of the Catholic hierarchy , telling them they must show God's compassion to those who suffer to be faithful to their ministry. Francis presided over the ceremony in St. Peter's Basilica, elevating churchmen who share his pastoral concerns at a time when his pontificate is under fire from conservatives within the College of Cardinals itself.

John Henry Newman (21 February 1801 – 11 August 1890) was a Catholic theologian, philosopher and cardinal who converted to Catholicism from Anglicanism in October 1845.

“ Newman is seen as the real bridge between Anglican and Catholic traditions,” Chris Patten, the He’s a very great Englishman, and it’s admirable that he’s being canonised .” In an article in the Times on Newman was beatified by Pope Benedict XV, who declared that an American deacon’s recovery from

Pope Francis on Sunday canonized Cardinal John Henry Newman, the 19th-century Anglican convert who became an immensely influential, unifying figure in both the Anglican and Catholic churches.

Pope Francis on Sunday will canonize John Henry Newman , a Victorian-era intellectual, Catholic convert and cardinal. A self-described “controversialist,” Newman was an early leader in the Oxford Movement, an attempt to reinstate ancient forms of faith and worship in the Church of England.

Cardinal John Henry Newman , one of the most influential and controversial Christian figures of the 19th century and a leading Anglican before converting to Catholicism, will be made a saint, the Vatican said on Monday. Canonisation will take place at the Vatican on Oct. 13, it said in a statement, after.

Francis presided over Mass on Sunday in a packed St. Peter's Square to declare Newman and four women saints.

Among the luminaries on hand was Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, who penned a remarkable ode to Newman that was published in the Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano.

Cardinal John Henry Newman is close to becoming Britain's first new saint since St. John Ogilvie was canonized by Pope Saint Paul VI in 1976. “The mind was alive not because he was some icy intellectual locked in a tower, but because he didn’t want to move minds without touching hearts”

Cardinal John Henry Newman will be canonised later on Sunday, at a ceremony conducted by the Pope and attended by Prince Charles. Late in Newman 's life, Pope Leo XIII made him a cardinal. Newman died in Birmingham in 1890. His remains lie in a closed sarcophagus at the Oratory.

Newman, a theologian, poet is admired by Catholics and Anglicans alike because he followed his conscience at great personal cost. When he defected from the Church of England to the Catholic Church in 1845, he lost friends, work and even family ties, believing the truth he was searching for could only be found in the Catholic faith.

Anglicans split from Rome in 1534 when English King Henry VIII was refused a marriage annulment. In the centuries that followed, Catholics in Britain were fined, discriminated against and killed for their faith.

In his editorial, Charles said that Newman's fearless, honest example was needed today in an era marked by division and intolerance "for the manner in which, at his best, he could advocate without accusation, could disagree without disrespect and, perhaps most of all, could see differences as places of encounter rather than exclusion."

Pope to elevate British convert Newman to sainthood

  Pope to elevate British convert Newman to sainthood Pope Francis creates five new saints on Sunday, including Britain's Cardinal John Henry Newman -- one of the Catholic Church's most renowned converts -- and a nun dubbed the "Mother Teresa of Brazil".Heads of state from across the world are expected at the Vatican ceremony, which will also raise a Swiss laywoman, an Indian nun and an Italian nun to the highest position within the centuries-old institution.

Newman was one of the founders of the so-called Oxford Movement of the 1830s, which sought to revive certain Roman Catholic doctrines in the Church of England by looking back to the traditions of the earliest Christian church.

But he gave up a brilliant academic career at Oxford University and the pulpit of the university church to convert to Catholicism in 1845. As a Catholic, he became one of the most influential theologians of the era, bringing elements of the Anglican church into his new faith tradition.

Yet Newman's legacy is complex for Anglicans and Catholics alike: Liberals like his emphasis on conscience, conservatives admire his submission to authority and his devotion to celibacy. Some gay activists have claimed him as one of their own, as Newman was buried in the same grave as the Rev. Ambrose St. John, his companion of more than 30 years.

On the eve of his canonization, one of the Vatican's most senior English-speaking officials, Canadian Cardinal Marc Ouellet, declared that Newman should be made a doctor of the church to honor the tremendous influence his writings had on the development of Christian doctrine.

Ouellet choked up as he delivered a speech on Newman and his role in bridging the theological gaps between the Anglican and Catholic traditions.
