~ Confirmation of Cultus (1) ~

     Pope Sixtus V created the Congregation of Rites in 1588, which was tasked, among others, to conduct processes of beatification and canonization. In 1634, through the decree Cælestis Hierusalem Cives, Pope Urban VIII forbade the existence of any public veneration on any purported saint a process per viam cultus directed by the Congregation of Rites could proves that this person had been the object of an immemorial public veneration [cultus ab immemorabili tempore] at least one hundred years before the publication of the decree. The Congregation for the Causes of Saints (CCS), created in 1969, possesses the competence accorded to the now defunct Congregation of Rites.

     The ordinary title given to someone whose cultus has been confirmed is “Blessed”, unless the decree specifically permits the title to be “either Saint or Blessed” [sanctus vel beatus]. In case the Blessed would be eventually canonized, the designation [Bd.] would be used below and the date of canonization indicated in yellow.
