CANONIZATIONS OF NEW SAINTS ANNOUNCED

    VATICAN CITY, MAR 6 (ZENIT.org).- An ordinary public consistory for the proclamation of the canonization of numerous Blessed will take place in the Vatican Apostolic Palace this Friday. According to a note of the Vatican Office of Liturgical Celebrations published this morning, the newly approved causes are those of Augustine Tchao and other Chinese martyrs who died between the 17th and 20th centuries; Cristobal Magallanes and his 24 companions; Fr. Jose Maria de Yermo y Parres, founder of the Congregation of the Servants of the Heart of Jesus and the Poor; Maria Josefa of the Heart of Jesus Sancho Guerra, founder of the Congregation of Servants of Jesus; Katharine M. Drexel, founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament for Indians and Colored People; and Maria Faustina Kowalska, the Polish nun who became the great apostle of devotion to Divine Mercy.

    The established dates during the Jubilee for canonizations are April 30 and November 1. While it is possible that additional dates would be added to the calendar, it is most likely that the candidates named today will be canonized one of those two dates. ZE00030607
