Titus Brandsma is one step closer to canonisation. Today Pope Francis acknowledged the miracle that was attributed to Brandsma: the healing of Father Driscoll.The bishops and cardinals of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints had already acknowledged this miracle, and the Pope will now adopt their recommendation. Almost all of the steps that are involved in the process of canonisation have now been taken, but it is unclear when the actual canonisation will take place.Brandsma was Rector Magnificus and Professor of Philosophy at Radboud University, or the Catholic University of Nijmegen as it was then known. He died in Dachau concentration camp, some six months after he had been arrested by the Nazis for his opposition to National Socialism. In 2005, he was voted Nijmegen’s Greatest Citizen of All Time.
