International Responsible Couple fort the Teams of Our Lady
Numerous participants—Teams of Our Lady members from all countries and Father Caffarel’s old friends—were present. The ceremony was organised in two parts. First came the apposition of the seals on the cases containing the documents, once each of those involved in the cause had sworn to have accomplished their task correctly. Most of the participants had never experienced such a particularly moving event. Then the Thanksgiving Mass began and was attended by over 500 people. Some came from very far away: Brazil, Poland or Togo. In his homily, Monsignor de Moulins-Beaufort accentuated the depth and extent of Father Caffarel’s life and message for couples, widows and numerous people who pray. In the days to come, Father Paul-Dominique Marcovits, o.p., postulator for the French part of the cause, will take up the mission of ‘carrier’ in order to ensure that the entire dossier arrives safely in Rome, where the cause will follow its course under the supervision of a new postulator at the Vatican.
Numerous masses were said on this same day in numerous countries around the world (Brazil, USA, Poland, Africa, Australia etc.) in order to celebrate this important moment. Father Roger Madiela, Spiritual Counsellor in Boma, Democratic Republic of Congo, sent us this testimonial:
A prayer meeting with a time for meditation was organised in each group on the evening of Friday, October 17th and on Saturday, October 18th a thanksgiving mass was celebrated in the Sacred Heart parish of Boma.
Eleven couples from the Teams of Our Lady attended this mass and gave thanks to God for having given us Father Caffarel, prophet of marriage and founder of the Teams of Our Lady Movement.
