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!
A priest was celebrating his 60th anniversary. I knelt down and said, "Father, I really need your blessing." When I opened my eyes after it was done he was kneeling next to me and said, "Now Father, I really need your blessing." I did not ask him how he stayed faithful for 60 years, for someone who humbled himself like that already gave the answer. To say Yes to God and to keep it - humility is the answer to faithful committed love. - via Instagram https://ift.tt/2pyavhq
