This is undoubtedly an event which has awakened the Interest of even non-Catholics in this country and thousands of Catholics who will be prevented from being present in St. Peter's for the papal Mass and the canonization had hoped that the B.B.C. would have provided them with an opportunity of following the. ceremony by which such great honour is being paid to two illustrious Englishmen.

It will take the form of a reconstruction of his life and wore.
