Transfer of the remains of the Servant of God José Maria Hernández Garnica to the Church of Montalegre

The mortal remains of the Servant of God Jose Maria Hernández Garnica (1913-1972), will soon be transferred from the cemetery of Montjuïc to the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament of the Church of Santa Maria de Montalegre, in Barcelona. This decision—authorized by the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints, in accord with the Cardinal Archbishop of Barcelona, Lluis Martinez Sistach—was announced on June 21 during a colloquium with Teresa Temes Hernández, the niece of the Servant of God, and is the result, above all, of the growing reputation for holiness of Fr. José Maria.
