Pope Benedict canonized 5 new saints today in a Mass in St. Peter's Square. They are Arcangelo Tadini (19th-20th century founder of the Congregation of Worker Sisters of the Holy House of Nazareth), Bernardo Tolomei (14th century founder of the Congregation of the Blessed Virgin of Monte Oliveto of the Order of Saint Benedict), Nuno de Santa Maria Álvares Pereira (14th-15th century Portuguese Carmelite priest), Gertrude Comensoli (19th-20th century foundress of the Congregation of the Sacramentine Sisters) and Caterina Volpicelli (19th century foundress of the Congregation of the Servants of the Holy Heart).
In his homily, the Holy Father spoke about the Eucharist, saying, "Nourished by the Eucharistic Bread, the saints we venerate today brought their mission of evangelical love to fulfillment in the various fields where they worked their individual charisms."
In his address at the Regina Caeli, at the conclusion of the Mass, he acknowledged Italian officials, including those from the birth cities of four of the five new saints, and Portuguese officials. He particularly greeted the Carmelites and the devotees of St. Nuno.
