From Rome Reports:
The tapestries of the faces of the five new saints Pope Francis will name on Oct. 13 already adorn the facade of St. Peter’s Basilica. Each of these future saints bear very different stories.
One of them is Card. John Henry Newman. The famous intellectual and theologian was baptized Anglican but decided to be received in the Catholic Church at the age of 45. He became a priest and worked for Catholics’ rights in England. With him will be canonized four women, among them a Brazilian, Irma Dulce. Sr. Dulce died in 1992. Her canonization is the third-fastest in history. Her spirit of service resulted in her nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1988. Many compare her to Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
