Cardinal Lopez Trujillo expresses support of Latin America for canonization of Queen Isabel of Spain

.- The President of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, said in Avila this week the bishops of the Church in Latin America intend to join the request by the bishops and cardinals of Spain for the canonization of Queen Isabel the Catholic.

Cardinal Trujillo said he was “a convinced defender of the importance that Queen Isabel the Catholic represents for the Church and for the history of the Church in Spain and in Latin America,” and that therefore he will be pushing in Rome for her beatification and canonization.

The Colombian cardinal, who is also a member of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints, expressed his commitment “to promote, together with the Spanish cardinals and bishops, the providential cause of Isabel the Catholic, which is also well-supported by history.  It is a canonization that should be in hearts of all in Spain.”

Expressing the support of the bishops and cardinals of Latin America her cause, Cardinal Trujillo said, “This process should not encounter any obstacles; on the contrary, it should be supported by the entire community of believers.”
