Argentina to have its very first saint: Blessed Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero

Pope Francis has facilitated the causes of sainthood for 10 men and women, that list includes Roman Catholic Argentinian priest, Blessed Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero.
Blessed Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero born 16 March 1840 and died in 1914 was a Roman Catholic Argentinian priest who suffered leprosy throughout his life. He was beatified on 14 September 2013 after a healing recognized as a miracle was credited to him. Cardinal Angelo Amato on the behalf of Pope Francis presided over the beatification. A second miracle under investigation was approved in 2016 and a date for canonization shall soon be approved. The Argentinian people have considered him a holy priest since long ago.
Argentina is soon to have its very first saint. Argentine Jose Gabriel Brochero has been declared a saint. Pope Francis signed the decree recognizing his intercession in the healing of a girl who was able to walk again after a debilitating stroke.
Pope Francis has expressed complete admiration for the Argentine priest, saying that he was a man who “did not stay in the sacristy combing the sheep.”
Also, Pope Francis has recognized a miracle attributed to Polish Blessed Stanislaus Papczynski, founder of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. He was born in 1631 and died in Poland in 1701.
