We are delighted to announce that on January 21, 2021, Pope Francis agreed to the promulgation of the decree recognizing the heroicity of Jerome Lejeune's virtues !

After the positive votes of the theologians in October 2019, the cardinals and bishops also voted positively on Tuesday January 12 2021 during an ordinary session. The Holy Father ratified this vote, thus paving the way for the official recognition of Professor Lejeune's heroic virtues.


From now on Jérôme Lejeune is venerable for the Catholic Church!


This is a decisive step towards his beatification. This great scientist, who put all his mind and heart at the service of people wounded in their intellect and tirelessly served the truth through his science and faith, truly exercised the theological and cardinal virtues in a heroic manner.
It is a great pleasure for all those in the world follow his shinning example, devoting themselves of the service of the sick and at life itself with unconditional love. And for lovers of Truth!

Jérôme Lejeune, through all his work, invites us to be amazed by the beauty of Creation, and to rely, with confidence and fidelity, on the goodness of the Creator, in whom only, man can find happiness.
