Cause for canonization of Sister Lucy of Fatima

On the coming 13th of February, the diocese of Coimbra in Portugal will conclude the diocesan section of the process for canonization of Sister Lucy Dos Santos, a Discalced Carmelite nun and one of the three Fatima visionaries. The Cause will now begin to be analyzed in the Vatican by the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints.

For the occasion, after the ceremony of closing takes place, a thanksgiving Mass will be celebrated for all those in the Coimbra Carmel. Following this, there will be a concert in the city Cathedral.

Sister Lucy was a Discalced Carmelite religious for 57 years and, after her death in 2005, was buried in the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary in the Fatima Sanctuary.
