"(Latin: beatus, blessed; facere, to make) The declaration by the pope as head of the Church that one of its members deserves for saintly life as confessor or heroic death as martyr, to be entitled Blessed, that is, regarded as dwelling in the happiness of heaven. The declaration is preceded by a double process, the first consisting of an examination into the life, virtues, writings, and reputation for holiness, or martyrdom, of the Servant of God in question, conducted ordinarily by the bishop of the place in which he or she died or lived a long time. In the case of a martyr no miracles are required in this first process, but they are required for others. The second process, known as the Apostolic process, is instituted by the Holy See in case the first inquiry shows that there is a likelihood of proving that the Servant of God practised virtue to an heroic degree, or died by the heroic death of martyrdom. To go further and obtain canonization, miracles are required for both martyrs and confessors."

In other words, beatification is the last step before being made a Saint. To become a Saint, which is to be cannonized, one must perform a miracle.

You're welcome . My teacher had to practically beat that into my head [along with the Apostle's prayer] when I was in catechism.

Yes he was, I have the point de vue issue with pictures of it. I enjoyed it very much as I finally got a glimpse of the children of Prince Jean & Helene Vestur (very attractive) and Josephine-Charlotte was their as well which I found very brave, she was wearing a turban to cover her bold head.

Yeah, I'm sure that's what he means. Bald and bold kind of sound the same anyway. =)

Would anyone have pictures of Prince Jean that they wouldn't mind sharing with us? I'm working on a Christmas project and I would love to have pictures of Prince Jean from his Baptism. Thanks in advance.

Princess Sibilla is the granddaughter of Infanta Beatriz of Spain and Don Alessandro Torlonia. She is the great-granddaughter of King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenie (Ena) of Spain. She is the great-great-granddaughter of Princess Beatrice of Great Britain and Ireland and Prince Henry of Battenberg. She is also a great-great-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Great Britain and Ireland.

By the way, Princess Sibilla's late father, was one of the richest men in France.

No, J-C liked Sibilla. It's Maria-Teresa she supposedly disliked.

Princess Sibilla annoys me for reasons I don't understand.
Lollies!
