Whispers: Newman beatification set for May 2010.

Rocco Palmo of Whispers in the Loggia offers the happy news that the beatification of John Henry Newman has apparently been scheduled for May of next year. An anonymous (but presumably reliable) source cited in a Catholic News Service story suggests that Newman will be beatified at the Birmingham Oratory on May 2, 2010. Once an official announcement has been made, further details on the ceremony will presumably be posted on the Newman Cause website. Having followed Cardinal Newman's cause with great interest and enthusiasm, I hope that today's reports are accurate. I also look forward to hearing what Deacon Jack Sullivan may have to say when the date of Newman's beatification is confirmed. AMDG.

I wonder if they'll ever get round to Gerard Manley Hopkins.
