COMUNICATION ON THE PUBLICATION OF THE MIRACLE’S DECREE
On the 23rd of March 2017, the Holy Father received in audience His Eminence Cardinal Angelo Amato, S.D.B., prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. During the audience, the Holy Father authorized the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to promulgate the Decree of approval of the miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto, children of Fatima.
The Postulation of Francisco and Jacinta Marto rejoices with the news, certain that the example of the two little shepherds who were witnesses of God’s presence through the hands of the Virgin Mary will challenge the Church to a generous life, available to God, for the good of the brethren.
The consistory in which the date of Canonization will be scheduled will take place on the 20th of April 2017.
