New Saints

Pope Benedict has largely delegated saint-making liturgies to others, but his second canonization ceremony included two New World saints, including Mother Theodore Guerin of Indiana. Felicitations to the Sisters of Providence and the students under Mother Guerin’s patronage.

These four saints, holy and heroic figures, are two priests and two women religious. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a few dozen lay people not in religious life?
