On 7 October 1845, John Henry Newman wrote to Henry Wilberforce: ‘Father Dominic the Passionist is passing this way on his way from Aston in Staffordshire to Belgium …He is to come to Littlemore for the night as a guest of one of us whom he has admitted at Aston. He does not know of my intentions, but I shall ask of him admission into the one true fold of the Redeemer’. On the night of 8-9 October, Fr Dominic Barberi arrived, soaked through with rain, heard Newman’s confession, and received him into the Church.
We thank God for St John Henry, whose legacy is with us in so many ways even today. May he pray for all of us, and may God bless you this day.
