My conversion was not without obstacle and so 26 years ago, my then parish priest gave me words of inspiration and encouragement - he also suggested that I pray to the then Venerable John Henry Newman for his intercession. I still have the prayer card given to me at the time.
Eventually, by the grace of God and with a little help from Newman, I was received into the one holy and apostolic church. Newman holds a very special place in my heart and therefore today is a very momentous day.
Sancte Joannes Henrice, Ora pro nobis!
Sant John Henry Newman gweddïo droson ni!
Saint John Henry Cardinal Newman, pray for us!
