    It's a CathInfo-wide grievance that people paste the entire article, formatting and all. Simply post a link, and stop deflecting. You look like a politician addressing a scandal when you do that -- and not in a good way, either.

  • As Father Pierre Claverie and 18 other martyrs were Beatified on Saturday in Algeria, Pope Francis sent a message to the Algerian people.
    By Linda Bordoni
    In a message to the people of Algeria Pope Francis urged them to go forward in healing the wounds of the past and nurturing a culture of encounter and coexistence.    
    The 19 martyrs were killed between 1994 and 1996 during the civil war in Algeria between the government and Islamist groups. All were religious and they all shared a love of Christ and a desire to serve the Muslim people of the nation.
    The Pope’s message was read after the Beatification Mass presided over in the city of Oran by Cardinal Angelo Becciu, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints.
    Pope Francis described the celebration as a joyful one for the Church in Algeria and said he joins the community in giving thanks “for these lives given totally for the love of God, the country and all its inhabitants”.

  • The Beatification of nine Spanish seminarians, martyrs of the 20th century, is a testimony for the Church today, disfigured by sexual abuses and the abuse of power by members of the clergy, said Cardinal Angelo Becciu, on celebrating the martyrdom of Angelo Cuartas Cristobal and eight companions, on March 9, 2019 at Oviedo, Spain. “We need honest and irreproachable priests,” he stressed.
    The nine seminarians – Angelo, Mariano, Jesus, Cesar Gonzalo, Jose Maria, Juan Jose, Manuel, Sixto, and Luis, killed out of hatred for the faith between 1934 and 1937 –, heard the voice of the Divine Master who said to them: “Follow Me!,” continued in his homily the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. However, “that ‘Follow Me!’ at a certain point asked for a greater and more heroic receptiveness and, once again, they said ‘yes’.”
    In an atmosphere of live Catholic hostility, whose objective was the elimination of the Church and, in particular, of the clergy, they were “determined to follow their vocation . . . conscious of the traps and dangers with which they would confront.” While it was enough for their persecutors “to identify them as seminarians to give free rein to their homicidal violence,” these young men “were able to persevere with a particular strength up to the last moment of their life, without denying their identity of clerics in formation,” explained the Cardinal.
    “Their testimony is of great actuality: they didn’t flee in face of difficulties, but they chose fidelity to Christ, he continued. The message of these martyred seminarians “speaks to the Church and to Europe”: “They remind us that love for Christ prevails over all other choices and that coherence of life can lead to death . . . They remind us that one can’t accept compromises with one’s conscience and that no other human authority can rival the primacy of God.”
    By their holiness of life, “the new Blesseds speak above all to the Church of today” because “they made the priesthood radiant,” affirmed the Prefect of the Dicastery, recalling the present scandals of sexual abuse and of abuse of power. “We are all troubled by the scandals that seem to be without end and that disfigure the face of the Bride of Christ. We need seminarians, priests, consecrated persons generous Pastors, such as these martyrs of Oviedo. We need honest and irreproachable priests that lead souls to God and don’t cause sufferings to the Church or trouble the People of God.”
    “By their message and their martyrdom, the new Blesseds speak to all of us and remind us that to die for the faith is a gift granted only to certain persons; however, to live the faith is a call addressed to all,” concluded Cardinal Becciu.

  • Pope Francis on Tuesday took 14 men and women a step closer to sainthood, among them an Italian missionary martyred in Myanmar and 7 bishops killed for their faith in Romania. 
    The Pope received Cardinal Angelo Becciu, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints and authorized the promulgation of 8 new decrees, recognizing the heroic virtues of 4 Italian nuns and an Italian priest, a miracle attributed to the intercession of a Spanish nun and the martyrdom of 8 men.
    9 Blesseds
    A decree recognized a miracle through the intercession of Spanish nun Sister Maria Emilia Riquelme y Zayas, foundress of the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and of the Blessed Virgin Mary Immaculate.  She was born in Granada (Spain) on August 5, 1847 and died there on December 10, 1940.
    A decree recognized the martyrdom of 7 Romanian bishops who killed under the country’s Communist regime between 1950 and 1970.  They are Valeriu Traian Frenţiu, Vasile Aftenie, Ioan Suciu, Tit Liviu Chinezu, Ioan Bălan, Alessandru Rusu and Iuliu Hossu.
    A separate decree recognized the martyrdom of Italian PIME missionary Father Alfredo Cremonesi.  He was born on May 16, 1902, and killed in the village of Donoku , Myanmar, on February 7, 1953. 
    Following the withdrawal of Japanese troops at the end of World War II from what was then called Burma, Fr. Cremonesi became a victim of the conflict between government troops and the Karen rebels.  He and his Christians were suspected of backing the rebels.  Fr. Cremonesi tried to convince the government forces they were neither rebels nor their sympathizers.  But before he could finish explaining, he and the village chief were gunned down. Fr. Cremonesi was immediately invoked as a "martyr" for giving his life for his flock.  
    5 Venerable Servants of God
    Five other decrees recognized the heroic virtues of the following:
    Italian diocesan priest Father Francesco Maria Di Francia, founder of the Congregation of the Capuchin Sisters of the Sacred Heart.  He was born in Messina on February 19, 1853, and died in Roccalumera (Italy) on December 22, 1913.
    Italian nun Sister Maria Hueber, foundress of the Congregation of the Tertiary Sisters of St. Francis.  She was born in Bressanone (Italy today) on May 22, 1653, and died there on July 31, 1705.
    Italian nun Sister Maria Teresa Camera, foundress of the Congregation of the Daughters of Our Lady of Mercy.  She was born in Ovada (Italy) on October 8, 1818, and died there on March 24, 1894.
    Italian nun Sister Maria Teresa Gabrieli, co-foundress of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Poor Women - Palazzolo Institute.  She was born in Bergamo (Italy) on September 13, 1837, and died there on February 6, 1908.
    Italian nun Sister Giovanna Francesca dello Spirito Santo (born Luisa Ferrari), foundress of the Institute of the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of the Incarnate Word; born in Reggio Emilia (Italy) on September 14, 1888, and died in Fiesole (Italy) on December 21, 1984.
