Living in the Catholic Gitmo: 3 - A Blessed for those denied due process

Fr. Antonio Rosmini was beatified today in Rome. This good priest suffered much, both in life and indeed in death since only recently have his writings been accepted.
Like St. Padre Pio, Chardin and countless other priests, Bl. Antonio suffered because of his ideas, but throughout his suffering he remained a loyal son of the Church and devouted to the life of charity.
In these seemingly never ending years wherein countless priests are denied due process, where appeals to Rome take anywhere from three to sixteen years, perhaps the new Blessed, having endured so much in his own life from those with power, will intercede that his brothers might, soon, recieve more speedily compassion from the Church.
