On the 26th of September, 2020, the team of medical consultants appointed by the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints, recognized, from the scientific point of view, the unexplainable nature of the cure of Fr. Michael Driscoll, O.Carm., attributed to the intercession of Blessed Titus Brandsma O.Carm.
This is the first, fundamental stage in the process that leads
We have now to wait for the next steps in the process, i.e., the special Congress of theologians, who have to judge and affirm the positive connection between the invocation of Blessed Titus Brandsma and Fr. Michael Driscoll’s recovery along with the other theological requirements that are in keeping with the norms; the Ordinary Session of Cardinal and Bishop members of the Congregation, and finally, if all of these steps have a positive outcome, the Prefect of the Congregation will ask for the Pope’s approval at the end of the Ordinary Session of Cardinals and Bishops.
Following that, having sought the opinion of the Cardinals and Bishops who live in Rome, and surrounding districts, the Holy Father will call the Ordinary Consistory, in the course of which he will confirm the opinion of the Cardinals and Bishops and announce the date of the canonization.
