Protocol No. 43/2014

B3924

To all the Religious of the Province

RE: Official Good News

Dear Brothers,

Together with this circular letter, you will find an English language copy of Cardinal Amato’s letter to our Prior General concerning the status of the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of the Servant of God Bishop Alfonse Gallegos, OAR.

As seen in the Cardinal’s letter, the Positio of the Bishop will not have to undergo a lengthy wait before it is presented to the Congress of Theologians for study. This is indeed good news! Many thanks are owed to Father Samson Silloriquez, OAR, for his tireless efforts on behalf of the Cause of the Servant of God.

Through the Congregation of the Causes of Saints, the Holy See has asked us, as a community, to make the saintly Bishop known to the faithful, and has encouraged us to invoke the heavenly intercession of Bishop Gallegos.

Recently, a number of favors attributed to the intercession of the Bishop have been reported to the Provincial House. This information has been documented and forwarded to Fathers Samson Silloriquez, OAR, and Eliseo Gonzalez, OAR, postulator and vice-postulator of the Cause.

We must remember that only competent Church authorities can declare what is truly a miracle; however, we must take note of the increasing reports of favors attributed to the Bishop which are being reported to the Provincial House and to others. Let us together pray that God’s holy will be accomplished in this great work.

In the near future, each house of the province will receive a printed copy of the Positio so that the religious of the province might become better acquainted with the Servant of God through the study of his life and work.

Once again, let us entrust this great work to the intercession of our Lady, Queen and Mother of the Recollection, and together let us pray for its success.

With every good wish and prayer, I am,

 

Sincerely yours in Christ,

 

Father Joseph J. Gallardo, OAR

Prior Provincial

 

Father Fredric Abiera, OAR

Provincial Secretary
