The Feast Of Blessed John Henry Newman

John Henry Newman was instrumental to my conversion to Catholicism. He was also very influential in leading others during his lifetime to Holy Mother Church. Here are his stats:

  • 636 English Nobleman.

  • 700 British Clergyman.

  • 1100 of their wives and children.

  • 700 professionals.

  • 612 of these young men became priests.

  • 164 of the women became nuns.

  • For this reason, it brings me great joy to find out that Newman's feast day will not be celebrated on the date of his death, but rather on the date of his conversion to the Catholic Church, October 9!

    Bl. John Henry Newman, the Great Converter, Ora Pro Nobis!
