Decree of inauguration of the diocesan commission

The fame of the scrupulously honest life of Giorgio La Pira is very well known, and after his death many applications were presented to begin a process to express an in-depth judgment on his life, his conduct, and the many activities he carried out.

When a formal request dated 6 October 1984 was presented to us in which Postulators Fr. Innocenzo Venchi O.P. and Fr. Antonio Cairoli O.F.M. had incorporated the many petitions, we willingly received the request, and after lengthy reflection, since Giorgio La Pira’s life seems to merit high consideration, in accordance with the Holy Canons and in particular the tenets of the "Divinus perfectionis Magister" Apostolic Constitution of 25 January 1983, pursuant to the affirmative vote of the Tuscan Episcopal Conference with this Decree
