Six new cases for sainthood under consideration by Archdiocese of Guadalajara

.- The newspaper of the Archdiocese of Guadalajara, Mexico reported this week that Auxiliary Bishop Jose Trinidad Gonzalez has confirmed that the archdiocese is studying the lives of six persons who could be added to the list of Mexican saints in the near future.
 
Bishop Gonzalez said two cases correspond to Josefa and Coleta, two young people from the town of Degollado who were captured during the Mexican revolution. Instead of giving to attacks against their purity, the two jumped into vats of boiling soap at a factory.
 
Another case is that of an anonymous young woman who was taken prisoner during the Revolution and was mutilated for refusing to have sexual relations with one of the commanders.  The commander later converted to Christianity through the intercession of the young girl.
 
The archdiocese is also studying the case of Rafael Valdez, a father of two priests who offered his life in exchange for the release of his son Angel, who was a public official in the town of Villa Guerrero, where he was captured and sentenced to death.
 
The other cases are of the founder of the City of Children, Father Roberto Cuellar, Marist Brother Basilio Rueda, and Friar Antonio Alcalde y Barriga of Guadalajara.
