Vatican sets new rules for postulators of sainthood causes

October 19, 2021

CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has issued new rules for the postulators who promote the causes of candidates for beatification and/or canonization. The new rules are designed to guard against conflicts of interest, limiting the postulator’s access to funds collected to advance a cause.

The new rules are part of a reform of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. A review of Vatican finances in 2015 found a near-total lack of control on the finances involved in promoting causes. In 2016, Pope Francis approved interim rules to address the problem.
