"I dream — and the dream has come true — of multitudes of God’s children, sanctifying themselves as ordinary citizens, sharing the ambitions and endeavours of their colleagues and friends.”
A recent newsletter about the life of Toni Zweifel, a Swiss engineer whose cause of canonization was opened on February 22, 2001, in the presence of the diocesan bishop, Amédée Grab, in Coira, Switzerland.
Toni Zweifel, whose cause of canonization has been opened, grew up in a family that was quite well-off. He drove an expensive two-seater sports car that his father had given him for his eighteenth birthday....
Toni first came in contact with Opus Dei in 1961, when "faith didn’t seem to have any real place in his self-sufficient and successful life. Toni had become a non-practicing Catholic with a baptismal certificate."
In 1985 Toni Zweifel, in perfect health, jotted down a somewhat surprising thought: “The bad thing is not so much the fact that one has cancer, but that one’s relationship with God isn’t strong enough to turn the sickness into something positive."
The diocesan process for the collection of documents and witnesses about the Servant of God Toni Zweifel was opened on February 22, 2001, in the presence of the diocesan bishop, Amédée Grab, in Coira, Switzerland.
Seeking the intercession of men and women who have died with a reputation for holiness is a common practice in the Catholic Church. Examples of favors received through the intercession of Toni Zweifel follow.
