At Vatican News we see that a miracle was approved for Bl. Charles de Foucauld, Apostles to the Muslims. This will lead to his canonization.
Also of interest is the miracle approved for Ven. Pauline-Marie Jaricot, foundress of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and the Living Rosary Association. In years past on this blog I have suggested to readers to ask her intercession for miracles for her cause. For example, when now-Fr. Philip Johnson was fighting his brain cancer, I proposed her. This is good news. They perhaps changed the Roman promoter. He did little to nothing. So, this is a pleasant surprise! I thought her cause was in a coma.
Of a lot of interest to many is the recognition of a miracle through the intercession of Ven. Michael McGivney, founder of the Knights of Columbus. This cause has always surprised me while not surprising me at all. Firstly, the KofC have a lot of clout and it is understandable that they wanted their pious founder to be canonized. However, McGivney left such a thin record of his thoughts, interior life, through texts that the case built for his heroic life of virtue was well-constructed but very thin. We have hardly anything that he wrote or said. And if memory serves, a sermon that he gave is recounted only second hand. In any event, it seems that Fr. McGivney will now be beatified.
I renew my request that you ask Ven. Fulton J. Sheen to intercede for a miracle for Fr. Dana Christensen, a priest of the Diocese of Sioux Falls, who comments here frequently. He was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ALS, or “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”.
Other causes could use your energies. I call to mind the cause of Ven. Augustus Tolton. I suggest that you pray to him for the miraculous healing of Rush Limbaugh’s lung cancer. We owe a great deal to Rush. HERE
