Public Consistory to announce Canonisations
11 a.m. on Friday, February 23, 2007 in the Consistory Hall of the Vatican
Apostolic Palace, an Ordinary Public Consistory was held for the canonisation
of the following Blesseds:
When Pope Benedict XVI had joined the assembled Cardinals and those associated with the various Blesseds Midday Prayer was celebrated. Then the Cardinal Prefect read short accounts of the life of each Blessed and petitioned the Holy Father to canonise them. The assembled Cardinals were asked if they had any objections. After a short silence the Holy Father declared that all would be canonised giving the dates for the canonisations.
Antonio de Santa Ana would be canonised on the 11th May 2007 and the other four, including Blessed Charles of Mount Argus would be canonised on the 3rd June 2007 in the Vatican.
