Dear Marianist brothers and sisters,

It is with great joy that we share the news that today, May 4, 2017, our Holy Father, Francis, signed the Decree of Beatification for Mother Adele de Batz de Trenquelléon, having received the favorable judgement of the Cardinals and Bishops who are members of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, rendered in their meeting of May 2. The Cardinal Prefect, His Eminence Angelo Amato, presented the favorable vote to the Pope this morning, and the Holy Father signed the Decree regarding the “miracle, attributed to the intercession of the Venerable Servant of God Mary of the
Immaculate Conception (neé: Adelaide de Batz de Trenquelléon), founder of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate; born 10 June 1789 and died 10 January 1828.”

We are infinitely grateful to God, the Most Blessed Virgin Mary and Venerable Mother Adele for this happy outcome, so long sought, regarding the case of the miraculous cure of Sr. Michela Messina, FMI.

We ask you to offer the Eucharist next May 12, the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces, in thanksgiving for this singular grace received in favor of Mother Adele and the entire Marianist Family.

Fr. Antonio Gascón, SM, Postulator of the Cause
