First Steps In Cause Ot Fr. Foucauld Completed

An ecclesiastical tribunal which has been meeting at Ghardaia, an oasis in the Sahara desert, has closed the first part of the process for the beatification of Fr. Cliarles de Foucauld.

Fr. de Foucauld, formerly M. to Lieutenant Viscomte de Foucauld, the explorer who became a hermit and apostle of the Bedouin Arabs, was slain in 1916 by marauders.

The process of his cause was opened in 1926. All the material gathered has been sent to the Sacred Congregation of Rights. This consists mainly of 14,000 odd typewritten pages of Fr. de Foucauld's writings.
