On September 15, 2007, the Congregation of Holy Cross celebrated with great joy the beatification of its founder, Blessed Basile Moreau. Now, with similar joy and thanksgiving, Holy Cross is celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows and commemorating the 10 Year Anniversary of the Beatification, with liturgies, celebrations, and events around the world. We invite you to join us in celebrating God’s Providence and the victory in Christ’s Cross in the life of Blessed Moreau.
The Congregation of Holy Cross has a number of resources to enter more fully into this anniversary celebration: a photo gallery of the beatification festivities in 2007; information about the life and ministry of Blessed Moreau, including reflections by Holy Cross religious; downloadable prayers and liturgical texts for the occasion; and news articles highlighting the events surrounding the anniversary.
Finally, as we find in Blessed Moreau even today a ready intercessory and a trustworthy guide in the life of discipleship, we invite you to continue to pray together with us for his canonization.
