Father Caffarel’s cause of canonisation has just reached a new stage

In Paris, on June 23, 2022, on the feast-day of Saint John the Baptist, in the presence of the Roman postulator, Father Paleri, the writing of the cause of Father Caffarel was completed. Marie-Christine Genillon and Father Paul-Dominique Marcovits finished up a long text of 790 pages – the Positio – presenting Father Caffarel’s life, thinking, virtues and reputation for holiness. 

The next day, on June 24, 2022, on the feast-day, of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Father Paleri, back in Rome, deposited the Positio at the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints. It is therefore in the beautiful light of the Precursor and in that of the love of the Lord for all, that this stage has been completed.

Prayer for canonisation

God, our Father,
You planted deep in the heart of your servant, Henri Caffarel,
A fountain of love, which bound him totally to your Son
And inspired him with a wonderful capacity to speak of Him.
A prophet for our time,
He revealed the dignity and beauty of the vocation of every person
In the words Jesus addresses to each of us: “Come follow me.”
