Pope will Canonize Pope Paul VI and Oscar Romero on Sunday, October 14

On October 14, Pope Francis will canonize Bl. Pope Paul VI and Bl. Oscar Romero during the 2018 Synod of Bishops.

Pope Paul VI is known for his landmark encyclical Humanae Vitae, which was published in 1968 and reaffirmed the Church’s teaching against contraception in wake of the sexual revolution. This year is the 50th anniversary of the historic encyclical.  Both miracles attributed to Paul VI’s intercession involve the healing of an unborn child.

Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador,  was martyred as he was celebrating Mass in a hospital chapel in 1980. An outspoken critic of the violence and injustices being committed at the time, Romero was declared a martyr who was killed in hatred of the faith for his vocal defense of human rights.

Rome Reports states that Pope Francis will also canonize another five saints. They are Italian Nunzio Sulprizio, who died at 19; priests Vincenzo Romano and Francesco Spinelli and two nuns, Maria Katharina Kasper and Bolivian Nazaria Ignacia de St. Teresa of Avila.

They and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care, as well as to the long-term need to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction.
