Given the propensity of people to create rumours about what the Holy Father is going to do and when he is going to do it, I am surprised not to have noticed rumours that since tomorrow is the Year's Mind of Cardinal Newman, Rome will take the opportunity of telling us when the beatification will take place.

At Vigil Mass on Saturday night, our Franciscan parish priest told us that Newman is to be beatified next May. It's really astonishing what religious can tell you - but to confirm it, I'll have to have an audience in the parlour of the local Carmel, and ask the enclosed contemplative nuns: they'll be sure to know.
2nd May, 2010 is the rumour I have been spreading.
