The case for the beatification of Adelaide Cini was formally reopened by Archbishop Charles Scicluna yesterday

He led a Mass 100 years from the exhumation of her body at the Addolorata Cemetery before it was transported to the Cini Institute, where she is still buried.

In his homily, the Archbishop announced that Dr Giovanna Brizzi will be the postulatrici, the person responsible for promoting and defending the cause for beatification before the Holy See,


Adelaide Cini had been declared venerable by Pope Pius X on 23 February 1910.

Cini, born in Valletta in 1838, had worked with women who were victims of prostitution and their children. She died in 1885 at the age of 46.
