I love this poem.

Cardinal Newman? Wasn't he the voice of the Hudson Hornet in Cars? ;)

The Telegraph got Cardinal Newman's name right, but they seem to have been the source for the "pre-empted" language.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/religion/5214156/Cardinal-John-Newman-poised-for-beatification-after-ruling.html

"Father Ker said: 'Newman was definitely a saint and he was a very English saint. He had a great sense of humour like St Thomas More.

'He also had a great gift for friendship which has been lost in the modern age.' The priest said Newman was a significant figure to Catholics worldwide because he pre-empted the reforms of the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s that modernised the Church."

The two articles are suspiciously similar. One writer leaned quite heavily on the other; I won't speculate who.

Sheesh. And I thought they way people keep confusing him with St. John Neumann was bad !

LJ

Paul Newman stood out for remaining married to the same woman for 50 years (although that was a second marriage) but even that doesn't quite qualify him for sainthood. In Hollywood it comes close, I'll admit.

Don

They mean, of course, Cardinal Alfred E. Newman

Michael

I think they meant the Cardinal Newman who was known for his bitter theological disputes with Archbishop Seinfeld and Patriarch Kramer I.
