Pope Francis to preside over public consistory to approve canonization of ‘Saint of the Gutters’

The Vatican has announced that the Holy Father will convene over an ordinary public consistory of cardinals on March 15 where he is expected to sign the decrees of canonization of Blessed Teresa of Kolkata, Blessed José Sanchez del Rio, 14-year-old Mexican who was put to death by government officials because he refused to renounce his Catholic faith, during the Cristero War of the 1920s, Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary, Maria Elisabeth Hesselblad and the “gaucho” priest Brochero.

The meeting of cardinals and promoters of the sainthood causes, also known as an “ordinary public consistory”, formally ends the process of approving a new saint.

Last year December 17th, Pope Francis approved the decree recognizing a second miracle attributed to the intervention of Blessed Mother Teresa in a miracle involving the healing of a Brazilian man with multiple brain tumors after family members prayed to Mother Teresa to heal him in 2008.

The late nun who was also known as the “Saint of the Gutters” should be canonized before the anniversary of her death, sometime in  September. That date too celebrates the Jubilee of Workers and Volunteers of Mercy.

The Pope is also expected to announce the canonization dates of Blessed Stanislaus Papczynski of Poland, founder of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception, and Blessed Mary Elizabeth Hesselblad, a Swedish nurse convert who founded a new form of life of the Bridgettines known as the Bridgettine Sisters.
