Pope Francis has recognised the heroic virtue of Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski and Fr Patrick Peyton

Pope Francis advanced the sainthood causes of Holy Cross Father Patrick Peyton and St John Paul II’s mentor, Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski.

The Pope approved the decrees recognising their heroic virtues during an audience on December 18 with Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for Saints’ Causes.

The Pope also recognised the miracles needed for the beatification of: Jesuit Father Tiburcio Arnaiz Munoz of Spain; Father Jean-Baptiste Fouque of France; and Sister Maria Carmen Rendiles Martinez of Venezuela. He also recognized the martyrdom of Father Teodoro Illera del Olmo, a member of the Congregation of St. Peter in Chains, and 15 companions, who were killed during the Spanish Civil War in 1936 and 1937.
