In the Footsteps of Marcellin
ARABIC EDITION

Lebanon and Syria have published the document In the Footsteps of Marcellin in Arabic. This gives us reason for profound joy as it shows the international scope of St. Marcellin’s charism and brings his teaching methods and ministry to people throughout the Arab world.

A step closer to his beatification
THE CAUSE OF BROTHER BERNARDO

On Tuesday, November 18th, Vatican theologians will begin examining the position of Brother Bernardo (Plácido Fábregas Julià). This is an important step leading to his beatification. It will take about two years for the theologians to complete their work because 27 causes of groups of Spanish martyrs are being brought together, among them the one concerning Brother Bernardo (third in line for consideration) and Brother Laurentino’s group (twenty-fourth).
