Vatican – Validity of Diocesan Inquiry into Cause of Servant of God Fr Silvio Galli, SDB

31 October 2022

(ANS - Vatican City) - The Postulator General for the Causes of Saints of the Salesian Family, Fr. Pierluigi Cameroni, has transmitted to the Bishop of Brescia Msgr. Pierantonio Tremolada, to the Superior of the Lombardo-Emilian Province, Fr. Giuliano Giacomazzi, and to the members of the "Auxilium" Association the news that the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints in its Ordinary Congress of October 19, 2022, gave juridical validity to the diocesan inquiry for the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of the Servant of God Silvio Galli, SDB, which closed in Chiari last June 12, 2022. This followed the verification carried out regarding the formal aspects of the procedural Acts and the consistency of the evidentiary apparatus: number and quality of witnesses, documents collected.

The Postulator General, Fr. Cameroni, emphasizes that "this is a great achievement, fruit of the work done with passion and competence in the diocesan phase. A special thanks to the members of the Tribunal and to those who gave their contribution."

The Postulator General will now ask the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints to appoint a Relator who will guide in the preparation of the "Positio super vita, virtutibus et fama sanctitatis" of the Servant of God, which will be drafted by Dr. Lodovica Zanet, collaborator of the Postulation.

On the occasion of the Solemnity of the Saints and on the eve of the Commemoration of the Dead, this news is a cause for joy as Fr. Galli lived as an authentic disciple of Jesus, and from this communion of life, he emanated that grace with which he welcomed people, especially the poor, the abandoned, the unfortunate, the wounded by life, and with his blessing and his word led them back to the path of hope for this life and especially for that of Heaven.
