CWN Editor's Note: The Congregation for the Causes of Saints has moved several candidates closer to beatification, with a series of decrees issued on April 6. The decrees confirmed a miracle through the intercession of Donizetti Tavares de Lima (1882—1961), a Brazilian priest; and testified to the “heroic virtues” displayed by:

  • Carlo Cavina (1820-1880), an Italian priest;
  • Raffaele da Sant’Elia a Pianisi (1816-1901), an Italian Capuchin priest;
  • Damiano da Bozzano (1898—1997), a Brazilian Capuchin priest;
  • Victorin Nymphas Arnaud Pagés (1885—1966), a French religious who died in Puerto Rico;
  • Consolata Betrone (1903—1964), an Italian Poor Clare religious;
  • Nelson Santana (1955—1964), a Brazilian who died in childhood; and
  • Gaetana Tolomeo (1936—1997), and Italian lay woman.
