February 05, 2010
Joined by Cardinal Ivan Dias, prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, and Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor, Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster offered Mass in the Congregation’s Three Kings Chapel, where John Henry Newman was ordained a priest in 1847. Referring the “constant call to conversion” manifested in the life of Cardinal Newman, Archbishop Nichols spoke of the longing for a “universal and infallible authority” that led to Newman’s ordination.
