16 to 22 June 2013

The round up for 16 to 22 June 2013.

There are no beatifications scheduled this week.

Sunday 16 June, Monday 17 June, Tuesday 18 June and Wednesday 19 June, I have nothing.

Thursday 20 June, for the Breton, in Paris in 1794, the martyrdom of the Servant of God Therese Guillaudeu des Bassablons.  A widow and a religious with the Society of the Daughters of the Heart of Mary, she was born in Saint-Malo.  She was martyred by the Revolutionary Tribunal.  She was denounced by the Revolution for providing an example of “fanaticism” and for harboring priests as prioress of the House of Providence in Saint-Malo.  Her cause, along with thirty-seven other victims of the Revolutionary Tribunal martyred between 1792 and 1794, went through the diocesean phase between 1920 and 1924, but Rome has not yet moved on it.

Friday 21 June, the anniversary in Pembroke, Massachusetts, in 1983 of the repose of Joseph Muzquiz.  A Spanish priest, he is credited with bringing Opus Dei to America.  He is remembered within that movement as a holy man, and though the cause has only been open two years, Opus Dei has the institutional apparatus and memory; he has a humanly good chance of speedy beatification.

Also Friday 21 June, the anniversary of the repose in 1970 in Gethsemani, Kentucky, of Brother Elias.  Born Charles William Simpson in Ohio, he was a brother in the same Trappist monastery wherein Fr Louis (Thomas Merton) was a priest, but has been less remembered in the world.  He is known within his monastery for the holiness of his life and the grace of his death.  There seems to be no cause anticipated for his canonization.

Saturday 22 June, I have nothing.

All the saints, orate pro nobis.

All the martyrs, orate pro nobis.
