"I have part of this great work; I am a link in a chain"
At a ceremony in Rome, Cardinal John Henry Newman was declared a saint. At the open-air service at the Vatican, celebrated by the Pope, and attended by thousands of pilgrims, including Bishop Mark, theologian and poet Cardinal Newman is the first English person to be made a saint in almost fifty years. Pope Francis has called on all Christians to adopt Saint Newman's definition of someone of faith, which he described as being "kindly lights".
