Dear Brothers and Lasallians,
I was informed this morning that the Cause of the Servants of God Borrás Ferré and Companions will be presented to the Ordinary Assembly of Cardinals and Bishops on Tuesday, June 5, 2012. This means that in all likelihood the Decree of Martyrdom will come at the end of June.
When this Decree comes it will signal the end of all the Causes of our Spanish martyrs…and it is probable that at the end of this year or during the coming year the beatification of the three groups of Brothers who have not yet been beatified will take place. We give thanks and praise to God for this.
I will use this occasion to wish each of you a holy Easter in the joy of the Risen Jesus.
It is good news for all Lasallians that we can see the merits of those Brothers recognized – those who were able to give their lives for their faith and for being faithful to their charism as Christian educators.
