NEW SAINT: Pope Paul Vi Will Be Canonized This Year
“Paul VI will be a saint this year,” Pope Francis confirmed during a session with priests of Rome. According to Vatican Insider, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints approved the second miracle needed for the canonization of Blessed Pope Paul VI by a unanimous vote.

The miracle attributed to the cause of Paul VI is the healing of an unborn child in the fifth month of pregnancy. The mother, originally from the province of Verona, Italy, had an illness that risked her own life and the life of her unborn child, and was advised to have an abortion.
A few days after the beatification of Paul VI in 2014, she went to pray to him at the Shrine of Holy Mary of Grace in the town of Brescia. The baby girl was later born in good health, and remains in good health today.The canonization could take place in October during the Synod of Bishops on the youth.
