    British government gives OK to move body of Cardinal Newman
    Canterbury, England (ENI). The British Ministry of Justice has granted a licence allowing undertakers to move the remains of Cardinal John Henry Newman from a grave in Rednal, Worcestershire to a new and special resting place at nearby Birmingham Oratory. Born in 1801, Newman was an Anglican priest who initially sought to bring the Church of England back to what he saw as its Catholic roots. However, in 1845, after a period of self-questioning and doubt, he was received into the Roman Catholic Church. [433 words, ENI-08-0652]
