Blessed Chiara Luce Badono

I have just been watching the beatification mass of Blessed Chiara Luce Badono on EWTN. I’m struck at the simplicity between this mass and the mass of Blessed John Henry Newman – and I’m a fan of Newman.

I’ve also caught a glimpse of the thanksgiving in the Paul VI audience hall in Rome. There is a markedly different tone in the celebration from the Birmingham Oratory thanksgiving Vespers and Mass. I know my heart and mind lies with Blessed Chiara’s celebrations, even though I love Newman's fidelity to his 'Kindly Light.'
