Apparently though a miracle has been attributed to Newman, which is why he is being canonised. A deacon in America apparently prayed to Newman and lo and behold his spinal cord problems were cured!
I did not know this. LOL. Newman was a spiritual chiropracter, apparently. The possibilities seem endless!

Having trouble picking up the morning paper are we? Just whisper a little prayer to Saint Spinecracker and rejoice, as your jowls will literally collide with your kneecaps, and you will view the world, temporarily at least, from an entirely new, albeit upside-down vantage point.

Unless Simon Singh weighs in soon, I'm backing this canonization.
