Consistory to approve canonisations announced

VATICAN (CNS): Pope Francis will preside over an ordinary public consistory on May 19 to approve several canonisations, the Vatican announced on April 11.
 
The consistory will most likely confirm the canonisation dates of Blessed Pope Paul VI and Blessed Archbishop Oscar Romero. The meeting of cardinals and promoters of the sainthood causes formally ends the process of approving a new saint.
