VATICAN CITY — Today Pope Francis canonized seven new saints amid waves of applause from nearly 80,000 pilgrims from all over the world, gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

Addressing the faithful during his homily at the Mass of canonization, Pope Francis said:  “The saints are men and women who enter fully into the mystery of prayer.  Men and women who struggle with prayer, letting the Holy Spirit pray and struggle in them.”
