"At a time when distances, tensions and wars are sadly increasing in the world, may the new saints inspire ways of dialogue," said Pope Francis.

“Our Christian lives begin not with doctrine and good works,” explained Pope Francis the canonization Mass celebrated in St. Peter’s Square on May 15, 2022, “but with the amazement born of realizing that we are loved.”

While he had appeared in a wheelchair in recent weeks, Pope Francis managed to stand to preside over the liturgy on Saturday. Ten new saints were proclaimed, among them Charles de Foucauld, Marie Rivier and César de Bus.
