Miracle attributed to Cardinal Newman


The BBC news is reporting that a deacon from Boston is attributing the healing of his spinal problems to the intercession of Cardinal Newman. The claim is being investigated.

A priest I know tells the story of a discussion he had about Cardinal Newman's cause with an Italian involved with the process. The priest asked this other fellow (I don't remember if it was a priest or bishop or what) what was holding up the cause, and the answer was that there weres no miracles to support it. So the priest asked, "What about all the miracles of faith?" referring to all of the people who attribute their conversion to Cardinal Newman. The Italians reply: "Bah! Conversions happen all the time! That's no big deal. But re-growing and amputated arm - now that's a miracle!"

I suspect Ms. Lewis will be happy to hear the news.
