The Midwest District has compiled numerous resources to celebrate the upcoming beatification of Brother James (Santiago) Miller, FSC, who was martyred in Huehuetenango, Guatemala in 1982. Brother James will be the first De La Salle Christian Brother from the United States to be beatified.
On March 20th, 2018, the nine theologians of the Theology Commission of the Congregation for Causes of Canonization voted unanimously to recommend the recognition of the martyrdom of Brother James Santiago Miller. The process for declaring him a martyr began in 2009 and received this important “green light” from the theological commission, which means we will soon be able to celebrate his beatification (date is still to be determined).
Resources provided include extensive backgrounds on Brother James, prayers, videos, images and more.
