A New Saint for the Society

On December 19, 2011, the Holy Father signed the decree authorizing the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to declare “Saint” Blessed Jacques Berthieu of the Society of Jesus, a French missionary in Madagascar where he suffered martyrdom. He was beatified by Paul VI in 1965. The canonization ceremony will probably be held in October 2012.
