First Canonizations for Pope Benedict XVI


This morning, Pope Benedict XVI presided over his first canonizations of saints in St. Peter's Square in Vatican City. He proclaimed five men to be saints: Zygmunt Gorazdowski, Jozef Bilczewski, Gaetano Catanoso, Felice da Nicosia, and Alberto Hurtado Cruchaga.

For more information on the new saints, visit the exhaustive index of saints at Catholic-forum.com:

Alberto Hurtado Cruchaga- Chilean Jesuit priest
Felice da Nicosia- Italian Capuchin friar
Gaetano Catanoso- Italian priest
Josef Bilczewski- Polish Latin-rite Archbishop of Lviv, Ukraine
Zygmunt Gorazdowski- Polish Latin-rite priest

These five men are in heaven and we can pray to them with the assurance that they will intercede for us to our God.

Sorry man, you won't...it would take a visible appearance from Christ Himself to make me believe that the Roman Catholic Church has everything right. No offense intended, but that is the truth.

Amen.

We're doing alright here, thanks. :) I'll send you the video reports I've been taping of Hurricane Wilma so far.
