Not Coventry: Brum!

I heard it on the BBC "Midlands Today" programme. So the Holy Father will be beatifying Cardinal Newman in Birmingham at Cofton Park which is pretty close to both the M5 and M42 motorways. Despite a lower capacity than Coventry Airport its proximity to the places associated with Cardinal Newman makes it seem more appropriate. On the other hand it is a great pity that some event at which the faithful could be present in mega numbers hasn't been organised.

Congratulations to Mrs Jackie Parkes for getting her email read out on Midlands Today!

  1. Off topic, (though I love Gerontius!) but I don't know how else to reach you...

    I thought you and your readers might be interested in my new blog, in which I review CTS booklets (and occasionally other Catholic books).

    It may be found at

    And I would welcome a link or a mention if you think it merits them.

    Many thanks and best wishes
