Sainthood causes: January 2010 Archives

Slawomir Oder.jpgThe postulator (main promoter/researcher) of the cause of canonization of the Servant of God Pope John Paul II, Msgr. Slawomir Oder, published the full text of John Paul II's resignation letter in his recent book, Why He Is Holy (only in Italian at the moment).

There are other interesting points in the book which you can read about at the CNS site.

Watch the video clip talking about the possibility of an unprecedented papal resignation.
Pierre Tousaint.jpgThe tragedy in Haiti brings to mind the presence of the Venerable Servant of God Pierre Toussaint entombed in Saint Patrick's Cathedral, a native of Haiti and whose cause is being studied for beatification and canonization.

My prayer has turned to the Venerable Servant of God Pierre Toussaint for the nation of Haiti and those ex-patriots in the USA who are anxious to learn of the well-being of their family members there.

Connections give a human face to the horrible situation in another country like Haiti, Here at St. Joseph's Seminary one of the men in the kitchen, Guy, is Haitian and can't reach his family in Haiti. We pray for Guy and his loved ones.
