Newman's altar

In response to my recent note about pictures from the English oratories, one of our readers put together these photos they had taken on a trip to the Birmingham Oratory. It includes some lovely shots from Newman's study, his clerical attire, photos of friends, and not the least of which, his private chapel:

Of course, being a bookish sort of person, I can't but help also show this picture of Newman's study. One wishes one could read the titles on the spines.

(See all the pictures here.)

And finally, while we're on the subject of Newman, please pray for the cause of his canonization.
