Blessed John Henry Newman: A Richly Illustrated Portrait
Many may wonder why Newman was beatified, what was it that made him holy? The authors indicate an answer to this question. His was not a life of extraordinary signs and wonders, of visions and ecstasies, not of physical trials. His holiness consisted in living up to the divine gifts and virtues of faith, hope and love, accepting and obeying God’s will in the ordinary, everyday circumstances of life, as well as in the extraordinary spiritual trials he faced for long periods.
