Cure may lead to Michigan bishop’s beatification

Catholic World News - July 28, 2010

The Diocese of Marquette (Michgian) has completed its investigation into a cure attributed to the intercession of the Servant of God Frederic Baraga (1797-1868), a Slovenian missionary who became the diocese’s first bishop. A liver tumor reportedly disappeared after the bishop’s stole was placed on the patient’s abdomen.

The Congregation for the Causes of Saints will now examine whether the cure was miraculous. The congregation is also expected to examine whether the bishop lived the cardinal and theological virtues heroically.
