Office of the Postulator

The Office of the Postulator is the entity within the General Curia that handles Causes for Canonization of the Servants of God before the Holy See. The office is carried out by the Postulator General and his collaborators. The Postulator General is appointed by the Superior General and approved by the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints. The Statutes of the General Curia determine the tasks. The causes introduced are selected with the approval of the Superior General from among those which present a special import for the Church or the Order and which will carry a message of significance to contemporary men.
