Saint news

Yesterday over lunch, Fr Briggs and I rejoiced at seeing the news of the decrees of the Congregation of the Causes of Saints.

Pope Pius XII and Pope John Paul II have had their heroic virtues confirmed, as has Mary Ward, founder of the Institute of Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Fr George Popiełuszko has had his martyrdom "propter odium fidei" confirmed, and a miracle has been confirmed as attributed to the Blessed Mary McKillop.

The picture above was snaffled from the blog of International Disciples showing Ven Mary Ward as an evangelist. For more about her, see the post Venerable Mary Ward: "That Incomparable Woman"
