Prayer to Cardinal Newman

As the public enquiry begins concerning the fence protecting Newman's grave and the Oratory House at Rednal, here is the prayer for the Cardinal's intercession.

God our Father, your servant John Henry Newman upheld the faith by his teaching and example. May his loyalty to Christ and his church, his love for the immaculate Mother of God, and his compassion for the perplexed give guidance to the Christian people today. We beg of you to grant the favours that we ask through his intercession, so his holiness may be recognised by all and that the church may proclaim him a saint. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Venerable John Henry Newman, pray for us.

St. John the Baptist, pray for us.
