Pope Canonizes first saint from Malta and three others

Jun 3, 2007 - 12:55 pm .- On Holy Trinity Sunday, thousands of pilgrims and faithful came to St. Peter's Square for the canonization of four new Saints: Giorgio Preca, Szumon z Lipnicy, Karel van Sint Andries Houben and Marie Eugenie de Jesus Milleret. The Pope addressed the faithful by first speaking about Trinity Sunday and how the Book of Wisdom invites Christians "to consider the many faceted and unceasing manifestations of holiness present in the people of God throughout the centuries." According to Benedict, "the Wisdom of God is manifested in the cosmos, in the variety and beauty of its elements, but its masterpieces are the saints."
