Posted On:23/10/2012

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI celebrated the World Mission Sunday by canonizing seven new Saints. Jacques Berthieu (France), Pedro Calungsod (Philippines), Giovanni Battista Piamarta (Italy), Marìa Carmelo Sallés y Barangueras (Spain), Marianne Cope (Germany), Kateri Tekakwitha (USA), and Anna Schäffer (Germany)  were raised to the honours of the altar,when  thousands of pilgrims from around the world gathered in St. Peter’s Square.
Pope Benedict, in his message, said that, it was an occasion of great joy that the canonization  took place   in Rome during the General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. As the Church is observing this year as the year of  faith, this occasion has a special significance  that the canonization  took place this year.
