The miracle needed for his beatification involved the healing of a permanent deacon in Massachusetts who suffered from a completely debilitating spine disease. After seeking the intercession of Cardinal Newman, the healing was virually instantaneous and complete. A second miracle will be needed for canonization.
The date and place of the beatification isn't known at this time, but it will be soon. And how wonderful it is to have a man of recognized sanctity praying for us (as he always has been), and there's every hope that we'll see the fruit of many more conversions through his intercession.
