4 candidates advance on path to sainthood

Catholic World News - April 16, 2014

In an audience with Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Pope Francis approved the publication of decrees on miracles attributed to the intercession of two blesseds, clearing the way for their canonization.

Blessed Amato Ronconi (c. 1226-c. 1292) was a Third Order Franciscan, and Blessed Ludovico of Casoria (1814-85), a Franciscan priest, founded the Congregation of the Franciscan Sisters of St. Elizabeth, also known as the Gray Sisters.

Pope Francis also approved the publication of decrees on the heroic virtues of Archbishop Alain Guynot de Boismenu (1870-1953), a French missionary bishop in Papua New Guinea, and Father William Janauschek (1859-1926), a Viennese Redemptorist priest. The two servants of God may now be called “venerable.”
