A few years after his death, the beatification process was begun in Portugal and later in Poland and Rome. This process, interrupted during the partition of Poland in the 19th century and the political turmoil in Portugal, was reopened in 1953 in Rome. Many report graces obtained through the intercession of Fr. Casimir. He was declared a Venerable Servant of God in 1989.
His fame of sanctity has lasted 200 years, especially in Portugal where it survived the period of confiscation and closing of religious communities. Even now Portuguese call him “Santo Polacco,” the Holy Pole. This gives us hope for a successful conclusion of efforts for his beatification. However, it depends on our prayers for this intention. Please ask the intercession of Fr. Casimir for your intentions. Please scroll down for suggested prayers included on this page.
From The Writings of Fr. Wyszynski
Christ left us in His own Mother the most perfect example of His life. She knew exactly the ways of God; her holy virtues show us how we should follow Christ. Only by imitating Mary shall we be her true venerators and servants. To imitate the Mother of God means to imitate most faithfully Christ Himself. More than all the saints, she knew Christ’s teachings and way of life.
If we want to be Mary’s true venerators and servants, we cannot limit ourselves only to study her greatness and dignity, privileges, and virtues. Nor is it enough to praise her by prayers and songs, giving some offerings in her honor, or making vows and acts of consecration. First of all, we have to imitate her exemplary life and special virtues. This way we become more like her and therefore pleasing to her.
