13 to 19 July 2014

The round up for 13 to 19 July 2014.

There are no beatifications scheduled for this week.

Sunday 13 July, in 1963 in Puerto Rico, the memorial of Blessed Carlos Rodriguez.  A lay catechist renowned for his personal holiness, his cause is unusual in being pursued primarily by the laity.  (Aside from Bl Pedro Calungsod, he is the only American beatus layman.)  He is also the only beatus from Puerto Rico, being beatified in 2001.

Also 13 July, the feast of S Henry, Emperor.  He was canonized in 1147.

Also 13 July, the repose of the uncrowned King Henry IX of England.  The last Stuart claimant, he chose not to pursue the crown, living instead as Cardinal Archbishop.  I am not aware of a cause for his canonization.

Also 13 July, of particular interest in Chile, the feast of S Juana Fernandez Solar, called S Teresa of the Andes.

Monday 14 July, the feast (in the United States) of S Kateri Tekakwitha.  She was canonized in 2012.

Also 14 July, in 1913, the repose of John B. Bannon.  A Jesuit priest from Ireland, he served as a chaplain for the Confederacy and as an informal ambassador, appealing in Ireland for immigrants not to join the Union forces and twice traveling to Rome to seek Vatican support.  I am not aware of a cause for his canonization.

Also 14 July, of interest to the Breton, the repose of the Servant of God Jacques Cathelineau, called the Saint of Anjou.  Commander of the resistance in the Vendee, he died during the taking of Nantes trying to join up the Vendeen forces with the Breton ones.  He was renowned also as a holy man.  The records for his cause were lost when the home of the Bishop of Angers was hit in an air raid in 1944.

Also 14 July, of particular interest in Peru, the feast of S Francis Solanus.

Tuesday 15 July, in 1964 in Wisconsin, the repose of the Servant of God Mario Hiriart Pulido.  A layman from Chile and member of the Schonstatt Brothers of Mary, he was in the United States seeking medical treatment.  Back in Chile he was an engineer and renowned for personal holiness.  His cause reached Rome in 2012.

Wednesday 16 July, of particular interest in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile and Puerto Rico, the feast of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Thursday 17 July, in 1781 in California, the deaths of Juan Marcello Diaz and Jose Matias Moreno.  Franciscan priests, they were beaten to death by Yumas in the Mission San Pdero y San Pablo.  I am not aware of a cause for their canonization.

Also 17 July, of interest to the Orthodox, the martyrdom of Tsar Nicholas II and his companions.  They were glorified by ROCOR in 1981 and by Moscow in 2000.

Also 17 July, of interest in Brazil, the memorial of the Blessed Inacio de Azevedo and his 39 companions, known as the Forty Jesuit Martyrs of Brazil.

Friday 18 July, I have nothing.

Saturday 19 July, in 1781 in California, the death of Francisco Hermenedildo Garces and Juan Antonio Barreneche.  Franciscan priests, they were killed in the same Yuma revolt that took Juan Marcello Dian and Jose Matias Moreno, dying in the Mission La Purisima Concepcion.  I am not aware of a cause for their canonization.

Also 19 July, in 1794 in Paris, of interest to the Breton, the martyrdom of the Servant of God Victoire Conen de Saint-Luc.  Of the Sistaer of La Retraite, from Rennes, she was martyred by the Revolutionary Tribunal.  Her cause, with the others of the Revolutionary Tribunal, went to Rome in 1924.

Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, ora pro nobis.

S Henry, ora pro nobis.

S Teresa of the Andes, ora pro nobis.

S Kateri Tekakwitha, ora pro nobis.

S Francis Solanus, ora pro nobis.

All the saints, orate pro nobis.

All the martyrs, orate pro nobis.
