CWN Editor's Note: On October 9 the Congregation for the Causes of Saints approved a decree confirming the martyrdom of two Franciscans (Father Tullio Maruzzo and Luis Obdulio Navarro) in Guatemala in 1981.
The congregation also affirmed the “heroic virtue” of seven candidates for beatification: two from Italy and one each from Brazil, Ukraine, Poland, Spain, and France.
