Newman shrine getting closer...




Yesterday the completed painting of Blessed John Henry Newman arrived, and it will soon be installed in the shrine which is presently being constructed.  Although it's not yet framed and just leaning against the wall in my office, I couldn't resist taking a picture.  The painting is five feet tall, and depicts Cardinal Newman standing in his study at Littlemore.  When the shrine is completed I'll have more (and better) pictures.
