I do not have more information. But from what I learned the leader of this movement the Italian Daniel sent a letter to Tolkien Estate asking about it and informing about a possible cause.

And in September, last month, there was a mass at Oxford oratory and there was a Tolkien's request for canonization. And from what I was told, Joanna Tolkien was present.

A letter from the Archbishop of Birmingham has been disclosed about the possible canonization of Tolkien in the Catholic Church.

New book J.R.R. Tolkien the esperantist Before the arrival of Bilbo Baggins

http://www.cafagnaeditore.it/prodotto ... arrival-of-bilbo-baggins/

The book contains studies by Arden R. Smith, Patrick H. Wynne and Oronzo Cilli which examine the connection which existed between J.R.R. Tolkien, and the planned language Esperanto, created by L.L. Zamenhof.

Smith and Wynne’s essay, published originally in Seven (2000), presents Tolkien’s first experiments with inventing languages and analyses in depth his initial encounter with Esperanto, as mentioned in a notebook of his from 1909 which he called the Book of the Foxrook.

Cilli’s essay covers the period of Tolkien’s life when he first encountered Esperanto in his youth, via the Officers’ Training Corps and Baden-Powells’ Scout movement and the celebration of the World Congress of Esperanto (1930), which was attended by R.B. McCallum, and the British Congress of Esperanto (1933), for which Tolkien was named a patron. Thanks to Cilli’s research, a document previously unknown in Tolkien studies, The Educational Value of Esperanto, signed by Tolkien alongside other eminent British academics of the time, is included.

A contribution from Tim Owen of the Esperanto Association of Britain enriches the book. The Foreword is entrusted to John Garth, author of the books Tolkien and the Great War: The Threshold of Middle-earth (HarperCollins, 2003) and Tolkien at Exeter College (Exeter College, 2014).
