5 to 11 July 2015

The round up for 5 to 11 July 2015.

There are no beatifications scheduled for this week.

Sunday 5 July, in 1868 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the repose of the Venerable Servant of God Rafael Cordero Molina.  A layman best known for his efforts to educate children regardless of wealth or race, he is respected by Church and secular sectors alike.  He was declared Venerable in 2013.

Also 5 July, in 1749 near Eagle Pass, Texas, the killing of Francisco Xavier Silva.  A Franciscan priest, he and the party he was accompanying had gone to get supplies when they were set upon by Apaches.  I am not aware of a cause for his canonization.

Also 5 July, in 1796, the repose of Daniel Carroll.  Of the famous Carrolls of Maryland, he was a signer of both the Constitution and the Articles of Confederation, one of only five people — and the only Catholic — to sign both.  I am not aware of a cause for his canonization.

Also 5 July, in 1896, the repose of Adele Brise.  From Belgium, after coming to America she was the visionary of the only Marian apparition in the United States recognized by the Church, that of Our Lady of Good Help.  Adele Brise went on to become a religious with the Sisters of Good Help.  I am not aware of a cause for her canonization.

Monday 6 July, of interest in Argentina and Bolivia, the memorial of the Blessed Nazaria Ignacia March Mesa.

Tuesday 7 July, in 1844 in Philadelphia, the killing of one or more unnamed members of the Hibernia Greens.  An Irish Catholic militia, they had been defending the church of S Philip Neri in the face of Nativist rallies.  After violence had broken out, they had been promised safe passage out of the church as secular authorities took over, but after leaving they were set upon by the mob and at least one was killed.  I am not aware of a cause for his or their canonization.

Also 7 July, in 1948, the repose of Rhoda Wise.  A convert, visionary and stigmatist, she is probably best known for her healing of Mother Angelica.  A cause for her canonization is in the early stages.

Also 7 July, of interest in Brazil, the repose of the Venerable Servant of God Antonio Ferreira Vicoso.

Also 7 July, also of interest in Brazil, the repose of the Venerable Servant of God Louise-Josephine Voiron.

Also 7 July, of interest in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, the memorial of the Blessed Maria Romero Meneses.

Also 7 July, of interest in Papua New Guinea, the memorial of the Blessed Peter ToRot.

Wednesday 8 July, I have nothing.

Thursday 9 July, in 1897 in Chicago, the repose of the Servant of God Augustine Tolton.  The first openly African-American priest in the United States, he is also associated with the formation of national parishes for African-Americans.  The diocesan phase of his cause was opened in 2011.

Also 9 July, in 1926 in Hawthorne, New York, the repose of the Servant of God Mother Mary Alphonsa.  Born Rose Hawthorne, daughter of Nathaniel Hawthorne, she and her husband both converted to the Faith.  After his death, she joined the Dominicans, founding the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne, a group that still exists and focuses on serving the elderly.  The diocesan phase of her cause closed last year.

Also 9 July, of interest to the Breton, the feast of the Holy Martyrs of China, among whom are two Bretons, Ss Marie of Saint Natalie and Marie of Saint Just.  They were canonized in 2000.
