Pope Approves Decree Regarding José María Arizmendiarrieta

ArizmendiarretaIn a communication from the Holy See, we have learned that Pope Francis approved a decree that recognizes the "heroic virtues" of founder of the Mondragon Corporation José María Arizmendiarrieta. The approval was announced during an audience celebrated with the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Angelo Amato; the first step in beatification. The road to sainthood is comprised of several steps. The first being the recognition of heroic virtues of a person who is then considered a "Venerable Servant of God" followed by beatification and then canonization. For the Venerable to be beatified it is necessary that a miracle occur through their intercession. To be canonized, a second miracle must occur after the beatification.
