Blessed Jose S. del Rio, Martyr

At this very moment, the Apostolic nuncio, Msgr.Christophe Pierre is in Sahuayo (the hometown of José Sánchez del Rio) Mexico, to officially close the Cause for the canonization of this martyr for the faith.  Joselito will be proclaimed a saint! 

I have received notice that it is not known how long it will take to set a date for his canonization.   Msgr. Pierre will be returning to Rome with the documentation to turn it over to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.  We hope it will be soon.
