Great News From Rome


June 19, 2020, Pope Francis officially approved the promulgation of the decree acknowledging the miracle attributed to our Founder - Fr. Francis Jordan.

The miracle: A young couple who were expecting a baby in 2014 in Jundial, Brazil, were informed by several medical doctors and specialists that their unborn child was suffering an incurable bone disease (skeletal dysplasia). Being members of a group of Lay Salvatorians, the parents began to pray through the intercession of the Venerable Servant of God Francis Jordan, and they invited other members of the Salvatorian Family to join them in prayer.

The child was born completely healthy on September 8, 2014, the Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Mother, and the anniversary of Fr. Jordan's death.

After the required canonical procedures had been successfully completed, the Holy Father, Pope Francis, declared that this miraculous healing was worked by God through the intercession of Father Jordan.

The Vatican has announced the beatification ceremony for Fr. Francis Jordan will be May 15, 2021 at the Archbasilica of Saint John Lateran in Rome.
