Venerables

The title of venerable in the Roman Catholic Church is given to a deceased person who has been declared to have lived a life of heroic virtue. It is the third step in the process of canonisation, after Servant of God and Blessed. To be declared venerable, a person's life and writings must be examined by a group of theologians and historians, who must determine that they lived a life of heroic virtue. This means that they consistently and freely practised the virtues to a high degree, even in difficult circumstances. Once a person has been declared venerable, their cause for canonisation can proceed.
