7th February – Ordinaries visit Birmingham oratory

20150207 - 1On Saturday 7th February 2015 Mgr Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, and Msgr Harry Entwistle, Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross in Australia, visited the Birmingham Oratory.

As well as the Shrine of Blessed John Henry Newman they also visited the Blessed Cardinal’s Room, which remains as the Cardinal left it when he died there on August 11th, 1890.

20150207 - 2Stepping into the Cardinal’s room, as the Ordinaries discovered, brings you to the very place which Cardinal Newman personally inhabited.

It remains exactly as he knew it. Electricity has not been installed inside it, and all of his books, pictures, mementos, items for saying Mass, etc., remain as he left them.
