The History of St. Cassian of Imola
I would like to advise
American court reporters of the accurate history of St. Cassian of Imola
because the information provided to American reporters on this patron saint has
been incomplete and incorrect.
I would like all court reporters and those interested in court reporting to learn of St. Cassian of Imola, a shorthand teacher who was martyred for Christ in Italy.
American court reporters have not been able to study the history and view ancient paintings of St. Cassian of Imola because the American court reporters have never referred to that saint by his official name in world history.
In the histories of American court reporting all references to St. Cassian of Imola refer to this saint merely by his title of Bishop of Brescia.
No court reporters can obtain information on St. Cassian of Imola when they only have his title with which to do research.
I have had the privilege to have direct communications with Italian court reporters who have great, great interest in St. Cassian of Imola.
I have been provided an extensive history of the efforts of Italian court reporters in particular to have St. Cassian of Imola beatified as a worldwide patron saint of court reporters.
St. Cassian of Imola has been officially beatified by Pope Pius XII as the patron saint of Italian stenographers in 1952.
Beatification allows a person to be honored by a particular group or region.
Beatification is one of the necessary steps for canonization of a saint.
Professor Anna Maria Trombetti has written me that the fact that the protection of the Saint from Imola has been granted only to Italy makes us disappointed.
Professor Anna Maria Trombetti also wrote me as follows:
"In the case America has the intention, as Italy also has, of supporting a new initiative to reopen the case by the Congregation of Rites to obtain the extension of the canonical legitimacy for the benefit of the whole world of stenographers, you can count on the cooperation of all my colleagues."
Unfortunately no official United States court reporting histories of court reporting make reference to the name St. Cassian of Imola. Those histories only refer to the Bishop of Brescia, and unfortunately court reporters cannot go on the internet and obtain information of St. Cassian of Imola using his title of Bishop of Brescia.
The history and several ancient paintings of St. Cassian of Imola which can be viewed on the following web sites:
It is my hope that court reporters of the United States and other countries may learn and study their patron saint, St. Cassian of Imola, when they have the saint's proper recognized name.
It is my hope that court reporters of the United States and other countries may be encouraged to extend the Roman Catholic Church's beatification of St. Cassian of Imola to the entire world of stenographers as is the goal of the Italian court reporters.
If any reporters would like copies of the extensive research and history of the beatification of St. Cassian of Imola as patron saint of Italian stenographers, they may request those copies from me at firstname.lastname@example.org
