The Foundation

The Catholic Action School of Sanctity Foundation’s aim is to collaborate and assist, in all possible ways and with all possible means, the parties concerned and the respective postulations of the causes for the Canonization of those already declared blessed and in the causes for Beatification of those already declared venerable and servants of God. It does this in cases of lay CA members, priest assistants and Bishops who promoted Catholic Action (CA), whichever country they come from and whether the cause is in the Roman phase or in the Diocesan phase.

THE FOUNDATION’S SERVICES

  • Collaborate with CA Associations and the local Churches in identifying and rediscovering significant witnesses, laity and priests past and present, for a CA school of sanctity.
  • Support local Churches in promoting the opening of the process of the cause of beatification and canonization for witnesses, CA laity and priests as well as those from other realities.
  • Promote, in every part of the world, deeper reflection on the theme of sanctity, in the light of the Magisterium and prayers of intercession to the Servants of God, the Blessed and Saints, among the faithful.

Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 263

«We say that things are harder today;
they are simply different. But let us learn
from the saints who have gone before us
who have confronted the difficulties
of their own day».
