UPDATE ON CANONIZATION CAUSE
OF BLESSED GAETANO ERRICO


    During the recent dedication of the new Bl. Gaetano Errico Chapel, Vicar General of the congregation, Fr. Angelo Terracciano took a few moments following the ceremony to update those in attendance on the canonization cause of the Founder.

   He related that a second miracle has been documented and presented for consideration to the Vatican commission.  The miracle took place in Secondigliano, home of our motherhouse.  A couple married for 10 years had been told there was no chance the wife would ever conceive a child.  The husband visited the tomb of the Founder in the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows to beseech his intercession.  A healthy child was conceived miraculously and born healthy.

 



   The congregation was actually contacted by the doctor who attended the woman.  Fr. Terracciano was in attendance when he was interviewed and related that the doctor, a non-believer himself, had to admit that it was indeed a miracle.  The initial opening of the case took place on December 10, 2005 and has now been submitted to the commission to be approved by the various authoritative panels for examination.

This process could take up to two years to be completed if it meets with acceptance.

Fr. Terraciano asked for the prayers of all that God may grant that Blessed Gaetano may soon be a saint.
