PHILADELPHIA (ChurchMilitant.com) – The cause for canonization for the first quadriplegic man ordained a priest has received the support of U.S. bishops.

At the annual fall General Assembly in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted unanimously to support the cause for sainthood for Pennsylvania native Fr. William Atkinson.

“The USCCB voted and unanimously agreed that his cause should move forward,” said the Rev. Anthony DiGuglielmo, vice chancellor for the archdiocese of Philadelphia.
