The Association for the Beatification of Chiara Corbella Petrillo


On Tuesday 13 June 2017, in the Basilica of San Lorenzo fuori le Mura (Saint Lawrence outside the Walls) in Rome, we celebrated the five years that have passed since Chiara Corbella Petrillo’s birth to Heaven with a crowded and joyful celebration of the Holy Eucharist. It has thus concluded the five-year waiting time that the Church requires in order to verify if the enthusiasm that has accompanied Chiara’s funeral and the interest risen by the way in which she has lived her short and intense existence were a flash in the pan or the fire alighted by God’s Spirit in order to warm and enlighten His sons’ life.

The goodness that the multitude of faithful who – in the most unthinkable ways – get to know Chiara’s Christian witness is a clear sign of her fame of holiness. For this reason, in close contact with the Vicariate of Rome, we are getting ready to open Chiara’s cause of beatification and canonization.

In order to do so, we have set up the Chiara Corbella Petrillo Association. We ask you to join us and accompany us with prayers in this service to the Church. Shortly, you will be able to find a dedicated section on our website with information about the Association, the ways you can support it, and how you can join it.

May the Lord give you Peace.

The Friends of the Chiara Corbella Petrillo Association
