After Every Suffering

VanI notice this: After every suffering, I feel that my heart is united more closely to Jesus. From this it comes that I have a bit of taste for suffering, since I find that suffering is the food that feeds the most very intimate love of my very little soul.
Little Brother Marcel Văn CSsR (1928–1959)

  1. Do you know anything about the process of his beatification? How is it going so far? I wished people would know more about him.

    • According to information in French at http://www.beatificationdevan.org/ the diocesan tribunal in Belley-Ars (where the process/cause was opened) is still in the process of gathering a complete file (documents, acts, writings of Van, witnesses, etc.). After that is completed, the bishop will approve sending documents, with a further statement, to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. But I don’t know any indications as to when that may be.

      I also wish people knew more about him. But that is probably obvious from the blog. =)
