Official Closing of Tribunal
Documents Off to Vatican
Source: Alive: Marianist Culture, Faith, and Community (Saint Louis, Missouri) Fall, 2010
Evening Prayer was held at Our Lady of the Pillar Parish in Saint Louis that marked the official closing of the Metropolitan Tribunal in
the Archdiocese of Saint Louis investigating the cure of Rachel Baumgartner Lozano, a young Saint Louis woman. Rachel was cured of
terminal cancer and she, her family, and friends, believe the cure was a miracle they prayed for through the intercession of Blessed
William Joseph Chaminade.
Now that the Tribunal is completed, the transcripts have been sent to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints in Rome, which will
study the documentation from a medical and a theological point of view.
The director and editors of The Mary Page under the auspices of the
International Marian Research Institute do not necessarily endorse or agree with
