Newman: 2nd Miracle
The postulator of the cause for the canonization of John Henry Newman has said that he is already studying the second miracle, which is necessary if the Pope is to declare the cardinal a saint.
The potential miracle took place in Mexico City some months ago. Having discovered the fetus she was carrying was suffering from a severe malformation, a mother prayed to Cardinal Newman for her child to be born without problems. The infant came into the world in perfect health and doctors were unable to explain how this had happened.
As it took place after the official announcement of Cardinal Newman's beatification, the miracle, if confirmed, would be valid for his future canonization.
