The decree of beatification of Brother Henri Vergès has been approved

29/01/2018: General House

The Pope has authorised the promulgation of eight decrees including the one referring to the martyrdom of Brother Henri Vergès.

On the afternoon of Jan. 26, Pope Francis received Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints in audience and authorised the Congregation the promulgation of the Vatican decree of the martyrdom of the Servants of God Pedro Claverie, of the Order of Friars Preachers, Bishop of Oran, and 18 religious comrades, killed in hatred of the faith, in Algeria, between 1994 and 1996 during the Algerian civil war. This cause is known as “the martyrs of Algeria”, which includes Henri Vergès.

Other information about the beatification will be given in the coming weeks.

The publication of the decree of the martyrdom of the Servant of God Veronica Antal, a lay of the Secular Franciscan Order, has also been authorised. She was born on 7 December 1935 in Nisiporeşti, Romania, and was murdered in hatred of the faith on 24 August 1958, in Hălăuceşti, Romania.

 

Four more Decrees refer:

- to the miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Nazaria Ignacia de March Mesa, foundress of the Congregation of the Cross Missionaries of the Church, who was born in Madrid, Spain, on 10 January 1889 and died in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 6 July 1943.

- to the miracle attributed to the intercession of the Servant of God Alfonsa María Eppinger, during Isabel’s century, foundress of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Most Holy Savior, born on 9 September 1814 in Niederbronn, France, where she died on 31 July 1867.

- to the miracle attributed to the intercession of the Servant of God Clelia Merloni, Founder of the Institute of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, born on 10 March 1861, in Forlì, Italy, and died on 21 November 1930 in Rome.

- the miracle attributed to the intercession of the Servant of God the Crucified Mary of Divine Love, in the century María Gargani, founderess of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart, who was born on 23 December 1892 in Morra Irpino, today Morra De Sanctis, Italy, and died in Naples on 23 May 1973.

 

Two other decrees refer to heroic virtues:

- of the Servant of God Ambrosio Grittani, diocesan priest and founder of the Oblates of Benedicto José Labre; born in Ceglie del Campo, Italy, on 11 October 1907 and died on 30 April 1051 in Molfetta, Italy.

- of the Servant of God Ana Maria Magdalena Delbrêl, a lay who was born in Mussidan, France, on 24 October 1904 and died in Ivry-sur-Seine, France, on 13 October 1964.
