“Father Caffarel’s Friends” Association was created on July 7, 2005 in order to promote the Cause for canonisation of Father Caffarel, opened on April 25, 2006.
It is an international association whose goal is to establish and carry out actions destined to make Father Caffarel known around the world – his personality, his ideas on marriage and personal prayer, his spirituality – as well as to support the work done for the cause financially.
It publishes, twice a year, a bulletin “Father Caffarel’s Friends Bulletin”, sent to all members.
Three books by Father Caffarel were published in 2022 :
- La prière, rencontre avec Dieu, Editions Parole et Silence, août 2022
- Präsent sein für Gott Hundert Briefe über das Gebet, 12 septembre 2022, Frank Höfer (sous la direction de), Hans Urs Von Balthasar (traduction)
- El matrimonio, aventura de santidad, Editions PPC, 22 septembre 2022
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.Read more
