On behalf of the Betania Foundation, the daughter of the Servant of God María Esperanza Bianchini, María Coromoto Bianchini Marrero and her husband Carlos Marrero Bornn, have had the honor of collaborating with the process of exhumation, authenticity and preservation of the mortal remains of the Venerable Servant of God Dr. Jose Gregorio Hernandez, who was born in Isnotu, Trujillo state on October 26, 1864 and died with a reputation of sanctity in the city of Caracas on June 29, 1919.
On Monday, October 26, 2020, His Eminence Most Reverend Baltazar Enrique Cardinal Porras Cardozo served as the Main Judge, Reverend Father Juan Carlos Silva Unda as Promoter of Justice, Mrs. Marrero as the Acting Notary and Mr. Marrero as Deputy Notary. Mrs. Marrero was responsible for reading the designated persons and the record of the previous transfer and recognition. Thus, in the presence of great ecclesiastical and civil personalities, the miracle girl Yaxury Solorzano and approximately 20 million viewers and users of social networks, with words of tribute, applause, and sacred and Venezuelan music, the process was opened.
The closing act took place on Saturday, October 31st. Cardinal Baltazar Porras, addressing the attendees, reflected on the fact that the week had been a mystical experience; that the medical team and the Tribunal had authenticated the mortal remains of Dr. Jose Gregorio Hernández and had touched his sacred relics. His Eminence called to walk with Dr. Jose Gregorio, seeking ways of reunification, asking him to watch over the Venezuelan people, filling them with faith, hope and charity, with a special awareness of the love of God, adoring Him and prostrating before the greatness of his love. He concluded by praying for reconciliation and peace in Venezuela, living and walking with Jesus Christ, the Lord of history.
His Eminence ordered the Mrs. Maria Coromoto to draw up a record of everything that was done, so that it could be sent to the Congregation for the Cause of Saints. At the end, the harmonious notes of the song “Venezuela” filled the air by the flutist Huascar Barradas and the Voices of Don Bosco, while the Cardinal and the Solorzano family joined in a fraternal embrace next to the mortal remains of the Venerable Servant of God Dr. Jose Gregorio Hernandez.
The Marreros expressed: “It was an arduous task of twelve hours a day, but we are so happy to have been part of the process, collaborating with a grain of sand in the cause of our Venerable Dr. Jose Gregorio Hernandez, whom our beautiful mother the Servant of God Maria Esperanza loved and loves from heaven.”
