Members – We have great news!! Our postulator in Rome has completed his review of Father Vincent’s life works and has finished writing the Positio (the formal position). The Positio is being printed and will be formally submitted to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints soon. Hopefully, it will agree and recommend a declaration of “Heroic Virtue” and bestowal of the title “Venerable Servant of God” to Father Vincent by the Holy Father.
This stage of our Cause is nearing completion as is our 2020 Lenten journey. Father Vincent endured the battlefield and died because he cared so strongly for the souls of his Marines – a dim but true reflection of our Lord’s death for all souls. In our humble opinion, the parallel is striking.
Next Steps in Father Capodanno’s Cause
What’s next? In Rome, it will be consideration of a miracle submitted by the Diocese of Palm Beach, FL. Locally, we need to push hard to get a Veneration Chapel ready. Board Member Don Campbell will be meeting with the AMS staff to further refine our estimate in mid-March, but we already know that making an appropriate chapel will be expensive. We will keep you informed as this important project progresses.
Please know that we would not be at this stage without your generous support and that we pray for your intentions through the intercession of Servant of God Father Vincent Capodanno each day.
