THREE ON THE ROAD TO SAINTHOOD

THE Sacred Congregation of

Rites, meeting in the presence of Pope John, has approved the authenticity of miracles obtained through the intercession of two citizens of the United States. They are Mother Elizabeth Seton, and Bishop John Neumann, C.SS.R.; Bishop of Philadelphia. Decrees for the beatifications were signed by Pope John on Monday.

Beatification of Mother Seton, giving the U.S. her first native horn beatus, will take place on March 17. Beatification date for Bishop Neumann, who was born in Bohemia. is variously given as March 19, feast of St. Joseph, or June 23.

The Sacred Congregation of Rites has also ruled that Pauline Jaricot, foundress of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and the Association of the Living Rosary, practised virtue to a heroic degree. Although the term is not used much these days. this advancement gives her the title of Venerable and is the first major step towards eventual beatification.
