BISHOP SISTO MAZZOLDI
I would like to share the good news that the Superior General and the General Council of the Apostles of Jesus have taken a baby step on the process of the canonization of Bishop Mazzoldi. They are still preparing more documents for scrutiny and approval. So far the Local Ordinary of Nairobi, John Cardinal Njue has approved and given an Ok to the Notarial Act and the appointment of the Postulator. The General Council is now working on the supplex libellus. The case of Bishop Mazzold is under the guidance of the postulation of "Missio Pastoralis" They have published some information on Bishop Mazzoldi and what the General Council has done so far.
