The cause for beatification of Archbishop Anthony Pantin will continue throughout this year. The Catholic community in Trinidad and Tobago is being asked to offer prayerful support throughout the process. Archbishop Pantin died 20 years ago on Sunday, March 12, 2000; he was 69 years.
Postulator for the Cause, Fr Christopher Lumsden said witness interviews were “at least 90 per cent” completed. The public was invited to give information on Archbishop Pantin in relation to his “heroic virtues”, any miracles and power of intercession.
Archbishop Pantin’s writings are being reviewed by theological censors to ensure there is nothing contrary to the faith and good morals. Fr Lumsden said the process is confidential and persons conducting the inquiry must sign oaths of confidentiality.
