But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

The Polish priest was a tireless preacher of God's mercy.

The nun devoted her life to religious ecumenism and the poor. She died in 1957.

On Sunday, September 4th, Mother Teresa of Calcutta will be canonized, exactly 19 years and one day before her death in 1997. It will be a massive ceremony and thousands of pilgrims from around the world are expected to be in attendance.

And on Sunday, October 16th, the Argentine priest Jose Gabriel Brochero and the Cristero child will be proclaimed saints in a joint ceremony. Brochero was known as the "gaucho priest,” who evangelized the most depressed areas of Argentina on the back of a donkey and is considered a model priest in peripheries. Jose Sanchez del Río was a child of 14 when he was brutally martyred during the Cristero War in Mexico in the early twentieth century.
