POPE CELEBRATES CANONIZATION MASS FOR SEVEN NEW SAINTS AT VATICAN

A crowd packs St. Peter’s Square as Pope Benedict XVI celebrates the canonization Mass for seven new saints at the Vatican Oct. 21. Among those canonized were two North Americans — St. Kateri Tekakwitha, an American Indian born in upstate New York who died in Canada in 1680, and St. Marianne Cope, who worked with leprosy patients on the Hawaiian island of Molokai.
