  Congregation for the Causes of Saints - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Congregation for the Causes of Saints (Congregatio de Causis Sanctorum) is the congregation of the Roman Curia which oversees the complex process which leads to the canonization of saints, passing through the steps of a declaration of "heroic virtues" and beatification.
The predecessor of the congregation was the Sacred Congregation for Rites, founded by Pope Sixtus V on 22 January 1588 in the Bull Immensa Aeterni Dei.
The congregation dealt both with regulating divine worship, and the causes of saints.

 Saint - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sorting out exactly which Saints are ahistorical is difficult, because of the larger difficulty of proving a negative: the absence of independent records of a Saint's existence doesn't prove she or he never existed; indeed there are no specific records of the existence of many people who lived before the 20th century.
The saints are seen as models of holiness to be imitated, and as a 'cloud of witnesses' that strengthen and encourage the believer during his or her spiritual journey (Hebrews 12:1).
The saints are seen as elder brothers and sisters in Christ, and just as believers may ask their fellow brothers and sisters on earth for intercessory prayer, the prayers of the saints in heaven can be requested as well.

The pro-prefect of the congregation is Archbishop Alberto Bovone, Archbishop Edward Nowak, and Monsignor Michele Di Ruberto.

In spite of agreed efforts to encourage local churches by offering blesseds or saints often already considered as national heroes, a blatant imbalance has been remarked upon in the causes under investigation at the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.
Even today, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints is inundated with ever more demands for opening new causes, since John Paul II has rendered the process much easier, making himself the spokesman of the “universal call to sanctity” launched by Vatican II, at the risk of trivializing the whole thing.

Normally, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints waits at least five years after a person's death before it begins to examine a petition for beatification brought by a candidate's local bishop.
At the canonization ceremonies, he frequently uses the saint's personal history and particular virtues to draw a larger moral and historical point, holding up the figure as an example of tolerance among nations and religions, or in countries that have suffered religious persecution, praising their unwavering loyalty to their faith.

In fact, the causes of saints are "major causes," both because of the nobility of the subject treated and their effect on the life of the People of God.
The second theme that your plenary assembly is treating is "the miracle in the causes of saints." It is well known that since ancient times, the process for arriving at canonization passes through the proof of virtues and miracles, attributed to the intercession of the candidate to the honors of the altar.
This is why the process of saints' causes moves from the scientific evaluation of the medical council or technical experts to a theological examination by the consultors and later by the cardinals and bishops.
