    FAITHVATICAN DISPATCH
    John Paul I, who was pope for 33 days, is likely to be beatified in 2022

    John Paul I, who was elected pope 43 years ago today, on Aug. 26, 1978, but died of a heart attack 33 days later, is likely to be beatified next year.
    The process for the cause of the beatification of the man Italians called “the smiling pope” has now reached the final stage, according to the vice postulator for his cause, Stefania Falasca, an Italian journalist and his biographer. She announced this in an article in today’s edition of Avvenire, the daily paper of the Italian bishops’ conference.
    John Paul I was born Albino Luciani in 1912 and ordained a priest in 1935. Pope John XXIII appointed him bishop of Vittorio Veneto, Italy, in 1958, and Pope Paul VI appointed him as Patriarch of Venice in 1969.

    His death on Sept. 28, 1978, 33 days after his election, caused a major controversy due to the Vatican’s secretive handling of it. Speculation around the cause of John Paul’s death was fueled by the book written by David Yallop, In God’s Name: An Investigation into the Murder of Pope John Paul I. Those rumors were debunked by Ms. Falasca in her full account of the pope’s death, Papa Luciani: Cronaca di una morte (Pope Luciani: Chronicle of a death), published in 2017.
    The cause for John Paul I’s beatification was opened in his home diocese of Belluno, northern Italy, in November 2003 and is based on the testimony of 188 witnesses, including Benedict XVI. After the regular process of deliberations at the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Pope Francis issued a decree on Nov. 8, 2017, recognizing that John Paul I had lived the theological virtues of faith, hope and charity to a heroic decree and declared him venerable.
    The recognition of an allegedly miraculous healing of an Argentinian girl who suffered from a severe brain disease would open the door to John Paul's beatification.

    At the end of November of that same year, an investigation was launched in the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires into the presumed unexplainable cure of an Argentinian girl who suffered from an acute form of encephalopathy, a severe brain disease. The documentation of the presumed cure was then sent to Rome for examination by the medical board of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints. That examination took place on Oct. 31, 2019, and the doctors unanimously agreed that the cure could not be scientifically explained. The case was next referred to the congregation’s commission of theologians who also gave a positive verdict on May 6, 2021.

    The final consultation at the congregation will take place in October when the cardinals and bishops of the congregation will meet together and give their verdict by vote. That consultation, too, is confidently expected to have a positive result. The prefect of the congregation, Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, will then take the conclusions to the pope, and Francis is expected to recognize the miracle. That recognition would open the door to John Paul’s beatification and decide the date for it, which is likely to be in 2022.
    Correction: The initial headline of this article stated incorrectly that John Paul I was likely to be made a saint in 2022. He is likely to be beatified next year. An earlier version of this article also incorrectly identified the pope who appointed Luciani as Patriarch of Venice.

  • Since the early string of martyr popes, we've never in the history of the Church had such an era of heroically-saintly popes as since V2.  Every single one of them need canonized.  Probably add Ratzinger and will hear chants of "santo subito" as soon as Bergoglio dies.

    It's just ironic that at the same time we've experienced the greatest decay of faith in the history of the Church.  Just a coincidence that happened DESPITE the efforts of these holy pontiffs.

  • “Interesting” that the alleged miracle in support of this beatification took place in the Archdiocese of Buenos Area (ie., Francis’s old stomping grounds).
    Romans 5:20 "But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more."

    -I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

  • Fr Gommar de Pauw did say, posthumously via a Mr Richard Cuneo, that JP1 called him to Rome to help restore the Mass, that Cardinal Ottaviani rated Cardinal Luciani quite highly. If Francis hears of this, the cause will come to a sudden, shuddering halt.

  • Was he murdered "33" days after being elected for a reason or am I being a schizo thinking Masons might have killed him? Did he actually have a heart attack? Red pill me on JP1

  • I heard JP1 was a liberal but was determined to investigate the Vatican bank.

    I've always had to wonder what things would have looked like, if Luciani had lived.

    In 1978, things weren't deeply-entrenched enough, that a reversal of the Mass changes wouldn't have been possible.  You still had many people who remembered the TLM.  Now, not so much.  What we have now, is new generations rediscovering and re-appropriating it.
