Indian priest Kurioakose Elias Chavara will also be canonized. He founded the Congregation of the Carmelites of the Mary Immaculate. He and Carmelite nun Euphrasia Eluvanttihal will become the third and fourth saints from the Syro Malabara Catholic Church.

The list also includes three other Italians: Giovanni Antonio Farina, Nicola da Longobardi and Amato Ronconi.

After Card. Angelo Amato, prefect for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints read their names aloud, Pope Francis approved their canonization in Latin.
