Update on the Cause for Beatification

When Archbishop Broglio closed the archdiocesan phase of the Cause at the Memorial Mass in May 2017, the findings of the tribunal were sealed and sent to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints in Rome. The Congregation will review the documents, along with the interviews of witnesses conducted during the archdiocesan phase. If the Congregation is convinced that Father Capodanno is a person of virtue, he will be designated as a Venerable Servant of God.

A miracle, obtained through the intercession of Father Capodanno, is required before he is declared “Blessed.” The tribunal is currently considering potential miracles for presentation to the Congregation.  In October, Archbishop Broglio and Msgr. Pugliese will be in Rome. They will ask the Postulator for the Cause, a canon lawyer, specially trained and certified by the Congregation, for his opinion on the selected miracle. They will also seek clarification on the miracle submission process.
