Beatification: “in the coming year,” Canonization: 2017

Notimex is reporting that Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the Postulator of the Canonization Cause of Archbishop Óscar A. Romero has said that Romero would be beatified “in the coming year” and canonized in 2017.  The source is identified as Luisiana de Beltrán, a representative of the Romero Foundation in San Salvador, who said that Paglia gave this report to Cardinal Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga, the coordinator of Pope Francis’ global council of cardinals, who in turn reported the news to Msgr. Ricardo Urioste, president of the Romero Foundation.

It is unclear from the statement when the statement was made and, accordingly, whether “in the coming year” means that the beatification would occur in 2014 or 2015.
