As if I needed another excuse to go to Rome, this event I wouldn't miss for the world.

Beatification of Cardinal Newman imminent.

Beatifications are now done at particular churches, so this beatification won't be in Rome. Although the Beatification of the Spanish Martyrs which happened just recently was at St. Peter's Square. The Church is returning to the former practice of beatifications at the local church and then Canonization at St. Peter's. Thanks to Fr. Z's explanation.
