Cure of St. Louis woman could lead to Blessed Chaminade’s canonization

Catholic World News - July 21, 2010

The Archdiocese of St. Louis has concluded its investigation into the cure of a 27-year-old woman who had suffered from sarcoma and bone marrow cancer. The cure is being attributed to the intercession of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade (1761-1850), a French priest who founded the Society of Mary (Marianists). The results of the archdiocesan investigation are being sent to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, which will examine whether the cure is a miracle.

    Many of us who have been helped by the Marianist family over the years have been praying for this to happen.
