SUMMARY OF THE CANONIZATION PROCESS FOR
VENERABLE HENRIETTE DELILLE
March 27, 2010
SISTERS OF THE HOLY FAMILY
The life, virtues, and reputation of sanctity of Henriette Delille were tried at the Archdiocesan New Orleans Tribunal and an alleged miracle attributed to her intercession was tried in the Galveston- Houston Tribunal.
All documents were signed, boxed, sealed, sent to Rome and registered at the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. These documents were declared valid on November 10.
The Positio, a compilation and defense of all the documents, written by our Postulator, Dr. Andrea Ambrosi, on Henriette's Life, Virtue and Reputation of Sanctity was completed.
Seven historians approved the Positio.
Nine theologians gave their approval of the Positio.
15 Archbishops and Cardinals from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints affirmed that Henriette Delille practiced heroic virtue.
The Pope declared Henriette venerable. The research into Henriette's life is now finished, and finished with a positive decision.
The Positio on the alleged miracle was completed. It must be approved by: two doctors; then 7 doctors; and 7 theologians.
The combined work of the doctors and theologians will be given to the members of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints who will present the conclusion to the Holy Father.
If positive, Henriette will be declared blessed.
The Beatification Ceremony will take place in new Orleans, LA.
Another miracle will be needed for sainthood.
