A much-anticipated meeting by officials of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles into the Sainthood Cause of Fr. Aloysius Ellacuria, CMF has been confirmed for November 17th. This milestone begins the study by experts into the life, writings, and ministry of the Claretian Missionary known for his four decades of priestly work in Los Angeles, Phoenix, and San Antonio.

The Sainthood cause has already produced controversy over a reported “mystical Eucharistic gift” during the US Catholic Bishops consultation in November 2015.

Dr. Andrea Ambrosi, the well-known Roman postulator, will be in Los Angeles for the occasion. Dr. Ambrosi has been instrumental in a number of sainthood causes throughout the world, including that of Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

Anyone with useful information about Fr. Aloysius, including especially writings and letters which were written by Fr. Aloysius, is encouraged to contact the “Association for the Beatification and Canonization of Fr. Aloysius Ellacuria, C.M.F.” at P.O. Box 645, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067 or email Fr.Kevin.Manion (at) gmail.com.

    I believe that Fr. Aloysius Ellacuria received the same mystical Eucharistic gift, that the founder of the Claretians, St. Anthony Mary Claret, received– a very beautiful and holy gift, indeed!! Very inspiring!! Perhaps this is a controversial subject, with some members of the USCCB– but how was this issue viewed, at the time of the canonization of St. Anthony Mary Claret??

  2. Linda Maria says:

    I was under the impression that this special, mystical Eucharistic gift of grace, which I believe both Fr. Ellacuria and St. Anthony Mary Claret received– was out-of-the-ordinary, a special gift of God– very unusual, not what us ordinary Catholics receive, during Holy Communion, at Mass. It is not what Catholics are ordinarily taught, in Catechism classes– because it is a special Eucharistic gift of grace. That was my understanding, of this miraculous mystical Eucharistic gift. I do not know what the USCCB currently has to say, on this issue.
