As a campus minister, I’m pleased to see one of my tribe move to the next square in the four-step movement to official sainthood. The Boston Globe link mentions the deacon who “prayed” to Cardinal Newman. I hope that could have been worded better by the journalist. I’m sure the deacon healed of his back ailment (I can relate) was asking for intercession.
