Rorate Caeli

To Be Deep in History: Lead, Kindly Light

On the two-year anniversary of his beatification, Rorate is pleased to bring you this very special, free look at a wonderful video on John Henry Cardinal Newman. "Lead, Kindly Light" is a special 20-minute film about this great convert.

Until now, it has only been shown once: on large-screen televisions (19 September 2010) in Birmingham, England, immediately before the Pope’s special Mass with the Beatification of Cardinal Newman.

The film was produced in 2010 by the Newman Connection, in association with Corpus Christi Watershed.

It is now being made public today in celebration of the imminent release of the St. Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal for the Traditional Latin Mass.

His Apologia is sitting on my shelf collecting dust. Time to finally read it!

Whatever happened to Newman feature film being planned with F. Murray Abraham slated to play Newman? It promised to be a very good film. Anyone know what became of the project?
