When the Pope visits Britain this coming September, John Henry Newman - a leading Anglican and founding figure of the Oxford Movement who converted to Rome - will be beatified, the first English saint since the 17th century. This portrait of a saint in the making is based on Newman's great poem, The Dream of Gerontius. Through its seven movements, it traces Newman's path through life - his lasting influence in the Church of England, his building of the church at Littlemore, his conversion, his vision and his founding of an English Oratory, the writing of the Dream, and the course of his beatification. Throughout, Newman's own words and advice on sanctity will be featured offering a timeless guide to holy living today.
