They are Jose Sanchez del Rio, the Cristero child; Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary who lived in the eighteenth century; Maria Elisabetta Hesselblad; Argentine priest Jose Gabriel Brochero and Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

The first to be proclaimed as saints in a joint ceremony on Sunday, June 5th will be Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary and Maria Elisabetta Hesselblad.

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.

Pope Francis will preside over all ceremonies.
