Process of Canonisation for Br. Fortunatus Thanhauser

The Kerala Synod of Bishops, meeting last week, resolved to begin the process for the canonisation of our Confrère, Brother Fortunatus Thanhäuser. The date will shortly be set for the celebrations to mark the official opening of the diocesan enquiry. The General Postulation will keep the whole Order fully briefed on developments.

Brother Fortunatus Thanhäuser was born in Berlin in 1918. He made his profession in the Order on November 21, 1936. In November 1996 he was transferred to Kattappana (Kerala) where he died on November 21, 2005.

May our Lord grant Brother Fortunatus Thanhäuser the glory of the altars as soon as possible.
