The Archbishop of Birmingham, the Most Reverend Bernard Longley, makes the humble request that Pope Benedict XVI beatifies Cardinal John Henry Newman to make him a 'Blessed'.
"It is right and fitting that we should recognise the holiness of a confessor, a son of this nation who, while not called to shed his blood for the Lord, bore eloquent witness to him in the course of a life devoted to the priestly ministry."
