.- The Holy See announced today that Pope John Paul II will canonize on May 16 six blessed including Gianna Beretta, the Italian woman who rejected a cancer treatment in order to save her unborn child forty years ago.

The list of blessed includes also four priests from Italy, France, Spain and Lebanon; and a religious woman who founded a community after she lost her husband. They are the following:

  • Blessed Luigi Orione, priest and founder of the Little Work of Divine Providence and of the Congregation of the Little Sisters, Missionaries of Charity.
