In England, Benedict XVI presided over the beatification ceremony of Blessed John Henry Newman on Sunday. He is about to canonise our first Australian saint Mother Mary of the Cross. Canada is celebrating the life of Brother Andre and his story of charity, holiness and hope. Another three people are also to be canonised on 17 October. Who are these people? What makes them holy?
