Welcome to Seven New Saints

Pope Benedict XVI named seven new saints today at Mass at St. Peter's Square in Vatican City. The seven new saints are Kateri Tekakwitha and Marianne Cope of the United States, Jacques Berthieu of France, Pedro Calungsod of the Philippines, Anna Schaeffer of Germany, Giovanni Battista Piamarta of Italy and Maria del Carmen of Spain. CNN has a great article about this here: All serve as reminders of the holy lives we are ALL called to lead, each in our own way. There can never be too many saints!

I like this photo from Catholic Meme that was making the rounds on Facebook tonight:
