Beatification of 19 martyrs of the Church of Algeria

11/02/2018: General House

The publication of the decree of beatification of the martyrs of the Church of Algeria, that we covered in our Agios.Mar 10, is the end of the long canonical journey of the cause, first in its diocesan phase and finally in its Roman phase.

The 19 martyrs of the Church of Algeria belong to nine orders or different religious congregations, plus the diocese of Oran, the titular seat of Bishop Pierre Claverie.

This cause is known as “the martyrs of Algeria”, which includes Br Henri Vergès.

Preparations are currently underway for the ecclesial celebration of the beatification to celebrate the lives that these brothers gave to the Lord in faith.

The 19 martyrs of the Church of Algeria belong to four different nationalities. One is from Belgium, two were born in Algeria, two were born in Spain and 14 in France.

This variety of institutions and nationalities is a richness that highlights the charismatic fecundity that we share in our ecclesial communion.
