Learn about Father Solanus Casey

By Michel Stechschulte - The Michigan Catholic
Sixty years after his death, Venerable Fr. Solanus Casey is on his way to sainthood. Pope Francis announced May 4 that Detroit’s beloved Capuchin friar has met the requirements for beatification and will be named "blessed" — the second U.S.-born man to achieve such a designation and the first person from Michigan.

Although Fr. Solanus was born in Oak Grove, Wis., in 1870, he spent most of his adult life and ministry in Detroit, caring for the sick, poor and downtrodden and lending a listening ear and caring heart to the thousands who came to him for counsel, wisdom and aid.

Among the hundreds — if not thousands — of healings attributed to Fr. Solanus during and after his lifetime, Pope Francis recognized the authenticity of a miracle necessary for the friar to be elevated from "venerable" to "blessed" after a thorough review by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints, including panels of doctors and theologians, was completed earlier this year.
