Pope Francis gives beatification approval for Italian queen, lay woman

2013-05-03

Maria Cristina of Savoy, Queen of the Two Sicilies, was born in 1812. She married King Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies. She was a very religious woman who died in 1836. At just 23 years of age, she passed away after giving birth to her only son Frances II, Duke of Calabria. Her beatification process was open in 1859, and she was made venerable 13 years later. Pope Francis has now recognized a miracle attributed to her intercession, paving the way for her beatification.

Maria Bolognesi
was an Italian woman, born in 1924 in the city of Bosaro, in northern Italy. She was declared venerable five years later, and is on her way to beatification, although a date or place have not been determined.

 
Pope Francis also recognized the heroic virtues of Joaquin Rosello Ferrà, a Spanish priest and founder of the Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary, as well as Mother Maria Theresa of  St. Joseph, a Polish nun and founder of the Carmelite Sisters of the Infant Jesus.
