Vatican City, Jan 25, 2017 / 03:04 am
The theological commission of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints approved last week a miracle attributed to the intercession of Mother Catalina de María Rodríguez, foundress of the Slaves of the Heart of Jesus.
Following the Jan. 19 approval, the next step for her beatification is approval of the miracle by a commission of cardinals in the congregation.
The miracle is the healing, 19 years ago, of a woman in Argentina's Tucuman province who had severe heart disease.
In the event that the miracle is approved by the commission of cardinals, they must draw up the decree of beatification to be presented to Pope Francis.
