    Can you tell me how I could contact the Congregation for the causes of Saints? I want to start the process of canonization for my sister who died in 1970, and I have absolutely no doubt this endeavor will one day come to fruition. But I’m not quite sure how to initialize all of this. You can email or call me at 972-998-0309. Thank you!

Got something to say?
