Beato subito! I believe his cause is quite far advanced...

The worthless Vatican II crowd is trying to keep this good and holy man from moving along on the path to Sainthood because he was very traditionalist and orthodox.

Rafael Merry del Val
would have been a great pontiff, at least he was one of the most distinguished members of the Holy Senate in the last 500 years. I have a moiré fascia, skullcap, a pectoral cross unfortunately a bit damaged and without chain, a pen and some other memorabilia which belonged to him in a vitrine plus a life-size portrait of him in my home office.

Any word on the status of his cause?

Any idea who the current postulator is and how he might be contacted?

I'm so sorry, that the beautiful house, where he lived was broken down. I'm not sure, if it was because of the building of the audience-hall (?)
