A longtime President of the Polish Bishops’ Conference, Primate of the Millennium, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński is to be beatified. On October 3, Pope Francis approved a decree on the beatification of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński.
Pope Francis approved the decrees of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. One of them officially recognizes the miracle through the intercession of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński, Primate of Poland. In this way, the last requirement for beatification was fulfilled.
As reported by the Press Office of the Holy See, Pope received yesterday in audience the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Cardinal Angelo Becciu and authorized this dicastery to publish eight decrees. One of them concerns a miracle through the intercession of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński.
The miracle concerns a 19-old woman who got sick in 1988 with an incurable thyroid cancer. She was completely healed through the intercession of ven. Cardinal Wyszyński in 1989 and she had no tumor remission within the next 30 years.
It is expected a message from the Holy See soon, which will give the date of the beatification and its place. The beatification process began in 1989 and ended in 2019. The general postulator of the process was Fr. Zbigniew Suchecki, OFM Conv. and a relator in the Congregation for the Causes of Saints Fr. Zdzisław Kijas OFM Conv.
The President of the Polish Bishops’ Conference, Archbishop Gądecki commented: “Great joy for the Church in Poland! We are grateful to Pope for approving the miracle through the intercession of Card. Stefan Wyszyński. We are glad that the beatification of the Primate of the Millennium will be soon”.
