LITTERAE COMMUNIONIS •2016-2017

ESTONIA

Corpus Christi, near the Catholic Cathedral, in the historic centre, but the one organised for the Fatima anniversary was one of the largest processions of recent Catholic history in Tallinn. Many Catholics in Estonia have a strong devotion to Our Lady of Fatima. ARCHBISHOP EDUARD PROFITTLICH SJ, SERVANT OF GOD The cause for the beatification as a martyr of Archbishop Eduard Profittlich SJ (1890-1942) has been opened and the diocesan process is on-going. This is the first time that Estonian Catholics are working to obtain the first blessed martyr in their history. Estonian Catholics need their intercessor in heaven, the Servant of God Eduard Profittlich SI (Archiepiscopi Titulari Hadrianopolitani in Haemimonto, Administatoris Apostolici Estoniensis, ex Societate Iesu), who served the Church in Estonia from 1930-1941, and have asked Rome’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints that he be beatified as a martyr of Estonia.
