I'm thrilled to the point of getting teary-eyed over the announcement that Pope Benedict XVI will be beatifying Cardinal Newman!

Happy, happy, happy :). I had seen reports back in January that the miraculous cure had been accepted but they were much vaguer. It really does seem as though his beatification is imminent now :).
