Before the next beatification of forty-seven brothers

24/03/2006: General House

From a total of 173 martyred brothers in Spain whose cause has been started, a group of forty-seven are going to be beatified in the months ahead, on a date that is still unknown, but which could be in the autumn of 2006 or the spring of 2007, but certainly in Rome. The cause is known as: Bernardo, Laurentino, Virgilio and forty-four others.

Given the great number of causes introduced from the same era, the Congregation for the Saints, at the request of the corresponding postulators, has decided to group them. The two causes that concern us (Bernardo, Laurentino) form part of a group of twenty-three causes, that is to say that there will be 495 people beatified on the same day.

To prepare for this event in the Marist Institute, the Brother Superior General has constituted in Rome a Commission formed by Brothers Emili Turú (co-ordinator), Onorino Rota and Iván Buenfil. At the request of the Brother Superior General, the Provincials with communities in Spain have designated Brother Santiago Fernández to also be part of the Commission. This team, who will work in close collaboration with the Postulator General, will be responsible for what has to be organised in Rome as well as the distribution of informative material to the rest of the Institute.
