Already, Fr. Querbes is recognized as a Servant of God by Vatican officials, which means his case has passed the first of four steps.
In a letter to Viatorian Superior General Fr. Alain Ambeault, CSV, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Cardinal Angelo Amato, S.D.B., said that the position paper documenting Fr. Querbes’ life and ministry, would be moved up and reviewed by the Special Congress of Theological Consultants in November, 2017.
This latest letter from the Vatican comes exactly 50 years after Pope Paul VI sent an Apostolic Blessing to the Viatorian Community on the 150th anniversary of the ordination of Fr. Querbes.
