Salesian Postulation involves 173 among Saints (9), Blessed (118), Venerables (18), Servants of God (28). The Causes followed directly by the Postulation are 58 (plus 5 extra).

The large presence of young people among the Saints, Blessed, Venerable and Servants of God should be remembered. There are in fact 46 young people under the age of 29: adolescents, Salesian Cooperators, young Salesians in formation, priests, consecrated women and men.

Of particular importance is the testimony of St Domenico Savio. Many Blessed, Venerable and Servants of God were able to make his intentions their own: Laura Vicuña, Zefirino Namuncurá, Giuseppe Kowalski, Alberto Marvelli, Giuseppe Quadrio, Ottavio Ortiz Arrieta Coya.
