That gives me a little while yet to learn to walk in the Way of the Cross.Blessed John Henry of Oxford, pray for us! the owl of the remove January 11, 2008 at 9:48 pmLog in to Reply Sadly, I have discovered after also reporting it – the “imminent” is not exact – apparently we are still some way off – what the Cardinal Prefect said was that he “hoped” it would be very soon.p.s. – I’m sure J. Scott is well on the way to beatification.

Someone is sure to have compared him to one of the Fathers. By the way, those of you out there with an interest in this kind of stuff will sure like to listen to Elgar´s “Gerontius” oratory, based on a poem of JHN´s. I had never heard about it before last year, when the São Paulo State Symphony presented it in December. Profoundly Catholic and beautiful. It is said Pius XII attended a partial performance in 1958 and was most grateful to Barbirolli. http://www.geocities.com/hansenk69/choral.html#DREAM thesheepcat January 12, 2008 at 4:32 pmLog in to Reply The Dream of Gerontius is little known in North America, but in Britain it’s widely performed, I understand. I have not yet had a chance to hear it.Anyway, I join with many others in hoping Cardinal Newman is beatified soon. Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
