.- The Vatican’s Office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff has announced that two religious sisters will be beatified on May 13th and 14th during ceremonies scheduled to be held almost simultaneously in Italy and Holland.

The first, Servant of God Maria Teresa di San Giuseppe, nee Anna Maria Tauscher van den Bosch, will be declared Blessed in Roermond, Netherlands on Saturday, the 13th.

Born to Lutheran parents in 1855, she became Catholic in 1888 before founding the Congregation of Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus in 1891. She died in 1938 in Holland.

On Sunday, Servant of God Maria della Passione di Nostro Signore Gesu Cristo, nee Grazia Tarallo, will be beatified in the cathedral of Naples, in Italy.

The Italian-born sister was part of the Institute of Crucified Sisters Adorers of the Holy Eucharist and near the end of her life, was said to have been physically sustained on nothing but the Eucharist.

She was born in 1866 and died in 1912. A declared miracle was ascribed to her, opening the door for her beatification, on December 19th, 2005.
