Basil Moreau – Cause for Canonisation

Cause for canonisation

“When a potential miracle occurs, it will be presented to the Congregation of the Causes of the Saints for their study.

In many of our houses and ministries, prayers are offered daily for the canonization of our holy founder, Blessed Basil Moreau. I know that this will continue to be the case until, on God’s schedule and not ours, a miracle will be accepted and the canonization will take place at some time in the future. Perhaps this will happen at a moment when the Universal Church needs the example and the extraordinary gifts Father Moreau offered to the Church in many lands through education, pastoral ministry and in many other ways.”

Superior General of the Congregation of Holy Cross
