Pope’s visit Day 4

Sunday 19 September


The final day of the visit focused very much on the beatification of Cardinal John Henry Newman in Cofton Park in Birmingham – adjacent, fittingly, to Rednal where Cardinal Newman was buried and the place where Newman and his community came for rest and recreation in the Lickey Hills.

The Holy Father then made a private visit to the Oratory of St Philip Neri, Edgbaston, Birmingham where he became the first person to pray at the new shrine for the “Blessed” John Henry Newman.

Pope Benedict concluded the day by meeting with the bishops of England, Scotland and Wales in Oscott College before returning to Rome from Birmingham International Airport.
