The last prayers by Newman's graveside

This afternoon we held our annual prayers by the graveside of Cardinal Newman, and this year may well be for the last time. If all goes to plan, God willing, his body shall exhumed in the autumn and his mortal remains transferred to a marble tomb in the Oratory church.

But most of all, by this time next year let us hope he has been declared blessed, and our prayers will be for his canonisation.
