Recently I received the good news from Antonio Bini of the decision of the Vatican's Congregation for the Cause of the Saints to grant the Nihil Obstat for the Cause of Beatification of the Servant of God Padre Domenico da Cese, O.F.M., Cap. (1905-1978) the Apostle of the Holy Face of Manoppello. Padre Domenico resided at the Shrine in Manoppello from 1965 to 1978. He promoted the Holy Face in every way possible and lived an exemplary life as a religious.

Here is a copy of the Nihil Obstat from the Congregation addressed to the Archbishop of Chieti-Vasto Bruno Forte. Thanks to Antonio Bini for this news and the copy of the Nihil Obstat. The faithful devoted to Padre Domenico who have witnessed extraordinary events that would be useful to the process of beatification are asked to send the pertinent information to the Santuario del Volto Santo 65024 Manoppello - Italy
