Bl. Luigi Guanella Canonized!

Wonderful news about a wonderful saint! Blessed Luigi Guanella, who worked closely with and was influenced by St. John Bosco, the founder of the Salesians, was canonized today by the Holy Father. Of his years with Don Bosco, Don Luigi said "Being with Don Bosco was to me like being in heaven."

His Holiness also canonized Archbishop Guido Maria Conforti, founded the St. Francis Xavier Foreign Missions Society, and Sr. Bonifacia Rodriguez De Castro who co-founded the Congregation of the Siervas de San Jose, which helped poor women in Spain in the 19th century

Here is a short video about Saint Luigi Guanella:

Saints Luigi, Bonifacia, and Guido Maria, pray for us!
