Information about Cardinal Newman Canonization

Special thanks to Theology Teacher and Campus Ministry Outreach Team Member Ben Jett for this information!

We wanted to make you all aware that you are able to watch the canonization of Cardinal Newman on EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network), which is the global leader in Catholic television, Sunday morning starting at 3:30 AM, as the Mass should Start around 4:15 AM here, which is 10:15 AM Rome time. If you don’t want to get up that early or don’t have DVR, they are re-airing it at 8:00 PM Sunday evening as well. We know that EWTN is available on both U verse and Spectrum, but we are not sure what packages include it. If you find that you don’t have it you can live stream online at https://www.ewtn.com/tv/watch-live/united-states.

The Mass is not only the canonization of Cardinal Newman but also of four others, Blessed Marguerite Bays and Blessed Sisters Marian Thresia, Giuseppina Vannini, Dulce Lopes Pontes. If you want to know more about these remarkable women here is a short article, https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/these-are-the-four-women-being-canonized-with-john-henry-newman-95404

We'll leave you with a short quote from Pope Benedict XVI which is from the homily he gave at Cardinal Newman’s Beatification, “The definite service to which Blessed John Henry was called involved applying his keen intellect and his prolific pen to many of the most pressing “subjects of the day." His insights into the relationship between faith and reason, into the vital place of revealed religion in civilized society, and into the need for a broadly-based and wide-ranging approach to education were not only of profound importance for Victorian England, but continue today to inspire and enlighten many all over the world. I would like to pay particular tribute to his vision for education, which has done so much to shape the ethos that is the driving force behind Catholic schools and colleges today. Firmly opposed to any reductive or utilitarian approach, he sought to achieve an educational environment in which intellectual training, moral discipline and religious commitment would come together.”

Thanks be to God that we can be a part of that tradition and may Blessed John Henry Newman, Pray for us!
