We are pleased to report that our efforts to launch the Cardijn canonise cause have borne fruit.

Thanks to the efforts of Fr Felix Van Meerbergen in Belgium, an ecclesiastical tribunal was launche by Archbishop AJ Léonard on 16 January 2014 to enquire into the canonisation of Cardijn.

We have also drafted a prayer for Cardijn's canonisation for use by all those who wish to seek his intercession.

We also hope that our campaign may one day to Cardijn being declared a Doctor of the Church.

We encourage all to take up this prayer and to share your prayer intentions on this site.
