    VATICAN CITY (CNS) — The Vatican has given its permission for the opening of the sainthood cause of an Iraqi priest and three deacons who were murdered by armed gunmen in Mosul.

    The Congregation for Saints’ Causes gave the “nihil obstat (no objection),” permitting a diocesan bishop to open a local inquiry into a candidate’s sanctity, according to Fides, the news agency of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, May 14.


    I think this was expected.

    A lot of good it did them.

    They would have been better off being protected by Smith and Wesson rather than Mary and Jesus.
