Detroit Parade 2018

I had a relative on the ground in Detroit last Sunday, March 11 2018, when they were celebrating St. Patrick and Irishness. Here in pictures is his report;

I googled him and here is what I learned.

Blessed Solanus Casey (November 25, 1870 – July 31, 1957) – born Bernard Francis Casey[1] – was an American Roman Catholic priest and a professed member of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin.[2][3] He was known during his lifetime as a wonderworker, for his great faith, and for his abilities as a spiritual counselor – but especially, for his great attention to the sick, for whom he celebrated special Masses. The friar was much sought-after and came to be revered in Detroit where he resided. He was also a noted lover of the violin, a trait he shared with his eponym, Saint Francis Solanus.[4][5]

His cause for beatification commenced over a decade after his death, and he received the title of Venerable in mid-1995. As a miraculous healing attributed to him was approved by Pope Francis in mid-2017, he was beatified in Detroit at Ford Field on November 18, 2017.[    Wikipedia
