Cause of Br. Crisanto and companions martyrs in view of beatification

15/09/2012: General House

As Postulator General, I have the joy of informing you that the Cause of Br. Crisanto and his 67 companions martyrs in Spain, is following a favourable course towards the beatification. The Bishops of the Spanish Episcopal Conference desire that this take place on  27 October 2013, on the occasion of the closure of the Year of Faith.

It is necessary to emphasize that the  4 Causes, all different, have been brought together in a single one. The martyred Brothers belonged to different dioceses and were killed in different places.

At the head of the four groups are Brothers Crisanto, Aquilino, José Cipriano and Guzmán, respectively.

The « Positio », the document which brings together the 4 Causes, was submitted to a group of a 9 theologians for their opinion. The 9 theologians have given a favourable vote (9/9).

The next step will be the discussion of the « Positio » by the Bishops and Cardinals, which will probably take place in October.

As Brothers of the same Marist Family, we ask Jesus, Mary and Champagnat to continue to bless this Cause.
