Kateri, six others proclaimed Saints

VATICAN CITY — Proclaiming seven new saints – including St. Kateri Tekakwitha and St. Marianne Cope from North America – Pope Benedict XVI said they are examples to the world of total dedication to Christ and tireless service to others.
In a revised canonization rite Oct. 21, the Pope prayed for guidance that the Church would not “err in a matter of such importance” as he used his authority to state that the seven are with God in heaven and can intercede for people on earth.
An estimated 80,000 pilgrims from the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Italy, Spain, Germany and Madagascar filled St. Peter’s Square for the canonization of the holy women and men who ministered among their people.
The pilgrims applauded the proclamation of the new saints, who included: Kateri, an American Indian who was born in the United States and died in Canada in 1680; Mother Marianne, a Sister of St. Joseph who traveled from Syracuse, N.Y., to Hawaii to care for people with Hansen’s disease and died in Molokai in 1918; and Pedro Calungsod, a teenaged Philippine catechist who was martyred in Guam in 1672.
The other new saints are: French Jesuit Father Jacques Berthieu, martyred in Madagascar in 1896; Italian Father Giovanni Battista Piamarta, founder of religious orders, who died in 1913; Sister Carmen Salles Barangueras, founder of a Spanish religious order, who died in 1911; and Anna Schaffer, a lay German woman, who died in 1925.
In his homily at Mass following the canonization, Pope Benedict prayed that the example of the new saints would “speak today to the whole Church” and that their intercession would strengthen the church in its mission to proclaim the Gospel to the world.

Amen to that Mryan. New names proclaimed to be in Heaven with God, all the Angels and Saints, Blessed Mother and St. Joseph to intercede for us. I certainly need their assistance, the sinner that I am.

Amen. This was announced Nov 5, but it is still nice to be reminded of this blessed event.
