The artist Antoni Gaudi has been called the “architect of God,” and his work is being put in the spotlight with the Pope's visit to Barcelona to consecrate the church of the Sagrada Familia. According to Gaudi biographer, Josep Maria Tarragona, there is a supposed miracle, which could lead him down the road to sainthood.
It is the unexplainable cure of a disease in a woman's retina, who was also from Reus, the hometown of Antoni Gaudí.
However, this is not the only supposed miracle by Gaudi. The Association for the Beatification of Antoni Gaudí received testimonies from people claiming he helped them to unify broken families, cure diseases, and convert people to Catholicism.
People like Etsuro Sotoo, a Japanese sculptor who is working on the Sagrada Familia, converted to Catholicism while researching the life of Gaudi.
The association believes that the beatification could take place on June 10, 2016, just in time to mark the 90th anniversary of the death of the world-famous artist.
