An important step!

The Congregation for the Causes of Saints has crowned years of efforts by signing in February 2014 the decree confirming the validity of the diocesan investigation!

This is essentially a procedural step, validating the way the investigation has been lead rather than the cause itself. However, it is essential and has made many an applicant tremble with fear: failing this decree, the case is send back to its originating diocese, and the full investigation procedure needs to be re-initiated. 

We are therefore much overjoyed and ready to move on to the next steps!

80 whitely bound volumes representing more than 30 000 pages are now at the disposal of the Postulator and of the Relatore for the Congregation so as to continue drafting the Positio. The case may now continue its course within the Congregation.
