.- The Vatican has announced that on Sunday, November 13th, Cardinal Jose Saraiva Martins C.M.F., prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, will pronounce the Beatification of three Servants of God as they continue their road to Sainthood.

This past weekend, Italian-born, Eurosia Fabris, also known as “Mother Rosa” became the latest in a heavy stream of recent Beatifications.

By order of Pope Benedict, Cardinal Martins will read an Apostolic Letter, in which the Holy Father will proclaim Charles de Foucauld, (1858-1916); Maria Pia Mastena, (1881-1951); and Maria Crocifissa Curcio, (1877-1957) as Blessed.

Soon-to-be-Blessed, de Foucauld was known to be a particularly holy priest, while Pia Mastena was a virgin and foundress of the Institute of Sisters of the Holy Countenance and Maria Crocifissa Curcio, was a virgin and founder of the Carmelite Missionary Sisters of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus.

The Vatican noted that at the end of the Beatification Mass, Pope Benedict will arrive in St. Peter’s Basilica to venerate the relics of the new Blesseds, greet gathered pilgrims and give his apostolic blessing.
