John Henry Newman was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in September 2010, thus moving one step closer to sainthood in the Roman Catholic Church. It is timely then to continue our celebration of Newman's life and work with a new series entitled Reading Newman. The first of the series, On Friendship, will include three sermons chosen to explore Newman’s profound meditations on the nature of friendship and its relationship to God.
