Boston Deacon Healed by Newman's Intercession at Westminster

Reverend Jack Sullivan, the Boston deacon healed through Cardinal Newman’s intercession, has spoken of the importance of Newman’s spiritual message in a sermon at Mass in London’s Westminster Cathedral on Monday 9th November. Deacon Sullivan was preaching on the first full day of a week-long visit to England, anticipating Newman’s Beatification next year.

At the Mass, Oratorian Fathers from Birmingham, London and Oxford joined the Archbishop of Westminster, numerous other clergy and hundreds of faithful for a solemn Mass on the Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome. Concelebrating was Archbishop Bernard Longley, who will be installed as the new Archbishop of Birmingham on 8th December, and will be closely involved in the preparations for Newman’s Beatification.
