I look forward to a time (after the euphoria dies down) when Bl John Henry Newman is less popular than he is now. Whatever his personal piety and learning I prefer such English saints who herald from a time of less decadance and decay in the Roman Church as Sts Bede and Ethelwold of Winchester. By ''decadance and decay'' I mean, of course, in terms of Liturgy. How many Low Masses did Bl John Henry Newman celebrate I wonder, to the greater detriment of Liturgy?
Alas for the neglect of so many English saints.
