Why is Cardinal Newman's canonization important for our times?

Canonization is a recognition by the Church that an individual has truly led a saintly life. In the popular press, this process is sometimes misunderstood, as if it were a decision by the Church to place someone in heaven. Quite the contrary.

Called to Something Great

Being a disciple of Jesus is still a reality today, as Jesus never ceases to draw people to himself.  This could be strongly felt on June 28th, 2019 in the Parish Church of St. Gallus in Bregenz during the Mass for the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Frater Kilian of the Spiritual Family The Work bound himself to Jesus in the Holy Covenant of Virginal Love, giving his life to Him, and promising chastity for the sake of the kingdom of God.  As a sign of this total gift of self, he received the white choir robe worn by members of The Work at liturgical celebrations.
