The closing session of the eparchial enquiry for the cause of servant of God Brother Fortunatus Thanhäuser

31 Jan 2023

Having obtained all the religious and civil authorisations, on 15 December 2022, in the presence of the diocesan Bishop, Mgr Jose Pulickal, the Ecclesiastical Tribunal, the experts appointed for the occasion, the Brothers of the Hospitaller Order of St John of God and the Sisters of Charity of St John of God, the remains of the Servant of God, Brother Fortunatus, were officially identified and translated from the cemetery to the chapel of our hospital in Kattappana. Now his body rests in the simple and intimate chapel, where the many faithful, including the sick, the poor and the needy, can more easily visit the tomb of the Servant of God to ask Our Lord for favours and graces through his intercession.

On 31 January 2023, the diocesan Bishop Jose Pulickal presided over the concluding session of the Cause of Beatification and Canonisation of the Servant of God in Kanjirapally Cathedral.

All the Documents will now be taken to Rome, to the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints, where the juridical validity of the Cause will be verified, and if positive, the Dicastery will appoint the Relator to guide the external Collaborator and the Postulator General to prepare the Positio on the heroic virtues of the Servant of God.
