# Why is the mollified process a semimartingale?

Let $X_t$ be a continuous adapted stochastic process and let $X_t^n$ be the mollified process defined by $$X_t^n= n \int\limits_{(t-\frac{1}{n})^{+}}^{t} X_s \,ds$$ Prove that $X_t^n$ is a semimartingale.

At fixed $n$,and for $t>\frac{1}{n}$ it is clear that this process is an adapted (continuous) finite variation process which entails that it is a (continuous) semi-martingale.
