From the intrepid Andrea Tornielli:
Yesterday morning there was help at the Congregation for Causes of Saints the second meeting of the theological consutors tasked to examine the "Positio", that is the documents and testimonies of the cause for beatification of John Paul II. In the first meeting, about which Il Giornale has spoken, was held on 13 May. But it had an intermediate (or interlocutory… "interlocutorio") outcome, because of critical point raised not about the personal sanctity of Pope Wojtyla but about the manner in which the work was advanced and the lack of documentation. The postulator of the cause, Msgr. Slawomir Oder, responded in writing to the objections and yesterday there was held the second and final meeting of the theologians, which had given a favorable majority opinion. Two of them maintained the initial "suspended judgement" ("sospensivo") because they though that the proofs and documents ought to have been integrate ("il quadro probatorio e documentale debba essere integrato"). This is the article that was published in today’s Il Giornale. Now the "Positio" goes to the cardinal and bishop members of the Congregation, who before the end of the year will make a decision about the heroic virtue of Pope Wojtyla. Then it will fall to Pope Benedict to promulgate the decree which will bring his predecessor to beatification.
The Congregation takes the documentation and how it is presented very very seriously.
Each cause is handled like a court case. The proofs (documents, testimonies, etc.) must be precisely organized to support the claim, make the case, that the servant of God live a life of heroic virtue, or that a miracle was granted by God, within moral certitude.
