Romero’s cause proceeding “with great speed”

Interesting new comments here, published today, from Archbishop Gerhard Müller, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, on the cause for the beatification of Archbishop Oscar Romero. It is important to note, for context, that in beatification/canonization causes, the CDF often reviews the writings and public comments of candidates to ensure they are free of doctrinal error. (This is my translation from the article, which is in Spanish.)

The process toward the doctrinal “nihil obstat” [that is, approval] in the Congregation [for the Doctrine of the Faith] has proceeded normally and under Benedict XVI even saw a decisive acceleration. We cannot forget that in 2007, during his trip to Brazil, Pope Ratzinger said clearly that he considered Romero worthy of beatification. Now, with Pope Francis, the process is proceeding with great speed in the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.
