Newman's Feast Day!!!--no questions now!

News from the Catholic Herald: Blessed John Henry Newman's feast day will be on October 9, the date of his conversion! I sure would like to get one of those booklets mentioned in the article.

An Anonymous post indicated as much on my August 11 post about Newman's death, but I was surprised since the tradition is for the saint to be honored on the date of his or her death as the date of being born into eternal life in heaven.

August 11 did pose a conflict because the cult of St. Clare of Assisi. October 9--mark it on your calendars!

The Catholic Truth Society has also posted a pre-order "official textual and photographic record" to be completed during/after the Papal Visit and other items, including commemorative stamps from the Isle of Man.
