Beatification of Pauline Jaricot, May 22nd, 2022
The Roman archives attest that the cause of Pauline Jaricot, founder of the Works for the Propagation of the Faith and of the Living Rosary, began in Lyon and then entered its Roman phase, when its introduction before the Congregation of Rites (today replaced by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints and the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments) was approved by Pius XI on Wednesday, June 18, 1930.
As of Tuesday February 19, 1963, the same archives mention a general meeting of the Congregation of Rites, in the Apostolic Palace, with cardinals, prelates and theologian consultors, in the presence of John XXIII.
On that day, three cases were studied: a miracle attributed to John Népomucène Neumann (beatified in 1963 and canonized in 1977), a miracle attributed to Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton (beatified in 1963 and canonized in 1975), two American saints, and the virtues of Pauline Jaricot. Unanimously, the cardinals, prelates and consultors vote in favor of the heroic virtues of Pauline Jaricot, which will be confirmed by John XXIII on Monday, February 25, 1963.
Pauline Jaricot will be beatified May 22nd, 2022. To find out more about her life and works: paulinejaricot.org
