Cardinal Newman's Funeral, 121 Years Ago (yesterday)

John Whitehead on Once I Was a Clever Boy reminds us that yesterday, August 19 was the 121st anniversary of Cardinal Newman's funeral in Birmingham. To quote: "More than 15,000 people lined the streets as the funeral cortege of Cardinal Newman made its way from The Oratory Church in Edgbaston, to the graveyard at Rednal." See the rest of the post here.

Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us!
