Pope names 7 new saints, seeks to revive faith

Published: 10.21.12, 10:11 / Israel News

Pope Benedict XVI has added seven more saints onto the roster of Catholic role models as he tries to rekindle the faith in places where it's lagging. Two are Americans: Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American saint from the U.S. and Mother Marianne Cope, a 19th century

Franciscan nun who cared for lepers in Hawaii.

 

Native Americans in beaded and feathered headdresses sang songs to Kateri as the sun rose over St. Peter's Square Sunday morning. Also on hand for the Mass was Sharon Smith, whose cure from complications from pancreatitis was deemed a "miracle" by the Vatican, paving the way for Mother Marianne to be canonized. (AP)
