Church to Canonize 4 and Beatify 78

Including Dozens Killed in 1930s Spain

VATICAN CITY, DEC. 19, 2006 (Zenit) - By Benedict XVI's decision the Church will soon canonize four more saints and proclaim 78 new blessed.

On Saturday, in a private audience to Cardinal José Saraiva Martins, prefect of the Congregation for Saints' Causes, the Pope authorized the promulgation of decrees of recognition of the candidates' miracles or martyrdom.

The four blessed to be canonized saints are:

-- Szymon of Lipnica, Polish, priest of the Order of Friars Minor (1439-1482).

-- Antonio de Santa Ana (born Antonio Galvao de Franca), Brazilian, priest of the Order of Alcantarine or Discalced Friars Minor, and founder of the Convent of Conceptionist Sisters (1739-1822).

-- Charles of St. Andrew (born Johannes Andreas Houben), Dutch, priest of the Congregation of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ (1821-1893).

-- Marie Eugenie de Jesus (born Anne-Eugenie Milleret de Brou), French, founder of the Institute of Sisters of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary (1817-1898).

The Holy Father also authorized the publication of decrees of recognition of miracles attributed to the intercession of four Servants of God, thus opening the doors of beatification to them.

They are:

-- Carlo Liviero, Italian, bishop of Citta di Castello and founder of the Congregation of Little Handmaidens of the Sacred Heart (1866-1932).

-- Stanislaus of Jesus Mary (born Jana Papczynski), Polish, priest and founder of the Congregation of Marian Clerics of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary (1631-1701).

-- Celina Chludzinska, Polish, widow and founder of the Congregation of Sisters of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ (1833-1913).

-- Marie Celine of the Presentation (born Jeanne-Germaine Castang), French, nun of the Second Order of St. Francis (1878-1897).

In addition to the four blessed, the Pope has authorized the beatification of 74 Servants of God by recognizing their martyrdom through the publication of the necessary decree. In the case of martyrs, no miracle through their intercession is necessary for their beatification.

The 74 martyrs who will soon be beatified are:

-- Manuel Gómez González, Spanish, diocesan priest born in 1877, and Adilio Daronch, Brazilian, lay person born in 1908, both killed in Feijao Miudo, Brazil, in 1924.

-- Albertina Berkenbrock, Brazilian, lay person born in 1919, killed in 1931.

-- Eufrasio of the Baby Jesus (born Eufrasio Barredo Fernández), Spanish, born in 1897, priest of the Order of Discalced Carmelites, killed during religious persecution in Spain in 1934.

-- Lorenzo, Virgilio and 44 companions of the Institute of Brothers of the Marist Schools, Spanish, killed during religious persecution in Spain in 1936.

-- Enrique Izquierdo Palacios and 13 companions, Spanish, of the Order of Friars Preachers, killed during religious persecution in Spain in 1936.

-- Ovidio Beltrán, Hermenegildo Lorenzo, Luciano Pablo, Estanislao Víctor y Lorenzo Santiago, Spanish, members of the Institute of Brothers of the Christian Schools, and José María Cánovas Martínez, Spanish, parish helper, killed during religious persecution in Spain in 1936.

-- María del Carmen, Rosa and Magdalena Fradera Ferragutcasas, Spanish, religious of the Congregation of Daughters of the Blessed and Immaculate Heart of Mary, killed during religious persecution in Spain in 1936.

-- Lindalva Justo de Oliviera, Brazilian, of the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, born in 1953, killed in 1993 in Săo Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.

In addition, the Pope proclaimed the heroic virtues -- a decisive step toward beatification -- of the following Servants of God:

-- Mamerto Esquiú, Argentinean (1826-1883), of the Order of Friars Minor, bishop of Cordoba, Argentina.

-- Salvatore Micalizzi, Italian (1856-1937), professed priest of the Congregation of the Mission.

-- José Olallo Valdés, Cuban (1820-1889), professed religious of the Hospitaller Order of St. John of God.

-- Stefan Kaszap, Hungarian (1916-1935), novice of the Society of Jesus.
