2 saints to be proclaimed Doctors of the Church in October
Catholic World News - May 28, 2012
During his Regina Coeli address on Pentecost Sunday, Pope Benedict announced that he will proclaim St. John of Avila and St. Hildegard of Bingen doctors of the Church on October 7, at the beginning of the Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization.
Last August, while on his apostolic journey to Spain for World Youth Day, Pope Benedict announced his intention to proclaim St. John of Avila a Church doctor but did not set a date. Earlier this month, the Pontiff announced St. Hildegard’s “equivalent canonization.”
