The Pope is pushing for the canonization of Argentinian businessman Enrique Shaw who died of cancer in 1962.

 

Enrique Shaw could become the first contemporary businessman and marine to be proclaimed a saint.

He died at 41, after fighting cancer for five years. Fernán Elizalde, postulator of his cause, is in Rome to deliver the documentation that will initiate the Vatican phase of the beatification process.

FERNÁN ELIZALDE
Cause of Beatification of Enrique Shaw
“He didn’t tell anyone he was sick, but he was dying. He battled cancer for five years, but never took medication. When the time came for his life to end, he had to have blood transfusions. About 300 workers from his main factory went to where Enrique was hospitalized, where he was practically waiting to die, and they donated blood for him.”

Enrique grew up in Argentina. He was known for his close relationships with others, especially with his workers. He was interested in their families, was always willing to give wise advice based on the Gospel and gave Bibles to the people he knew, to bring them closer to God.

In an interview for Mexican television, the pope said that Enrique Shaw “was rich, but he was a saint. He managed money well, allowing those who needed help to grow.”

Pope Francis also recognized Enrique at this informal conversation after the General Audience when someone about him.

“This great guy, he’s gonna be holy, huh? He’s gonna be holy.”

“A great businessman and a great man of the Church. You will see that he will be a saint very soon.”

 

Go here to read the rest.  Seems like a very worthy candidate.  Interesting that he was imprisoned by Juan Peron.

  1. Sounds like this man was a very solid Catholic. Perhaps an outstanding Catholic. But from what I read above…a saint??
    Hmmmm. Merry Christmas.

    This ties in with something I’ve been trying to formulate–basically, the best way to help America to the south. Listening at mass, and to the radio, they keep harping on how we have to help the folks…who make it here.

    Wouldn’t it be better to make their homes better? It’s good to have someone as a guest in your house– it’s better to help them fix their roof so they have a home of their own.
