Instruction on the Diocesan Inquiry of Causes of Saints

Read the above article to learn more about how the Vatican is adjusting it's process of Causes of Saints. Of particular note is this part:

Turning to the last reason for which the document was published, Cardinal
Saraiva noted how, "in the move from the earlier legislation to that in force
today, it was unclear to some people that a serious and rigorous verification of
the fame of sanctity or martyrdom, undertaken in dioceses, is a prior
requirement of absolute importance. Hence, a procedure must not be begin without
irrefutable proof that the Servant of God ... is held to be a saint or martyr by
a considerable number of faithful, who invoke him or her in their prayers and
attribute graces and favours to his or her intercession".

This is why we must diligently work to teach about Sr. Marie, her mission, pass out prayer cards, gather signatures on petitions, and write letters of testimony and to the Bishops! Please join in and help Sr. Marie be raised to the Altar of Saints! Your contributions are crucial to the cause. Let the Vox Populi (voice of the people) be heard!
