The Theological Commission of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints affirmed Tuesday the heroic virtues of Archbishop Teofilo Camomot, a Filipino prelate and founder of a religious order, who died in 1988.
The nine member commission's Nov. 9 decision was unanimous.
“With this favorable outcome, the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Bishop Camomot will be forwarded for further examination to the Commission of Bishops and Cardinals of the said Congregation,” the Archdiocese of Cebu said Nov. 10.
Archbishop Camomot was born in Cogon, Carcar, Cebu, March 3, 1914, to Luis and Angela Bastida, and was baptized the following day. He was confimed Aug. 22, 1915.
