Franciso Marto and Jacinta Marto declared Saints by Pope Francis in Fatima.
On May 13 2017, Francisco Marto and Jacinta Marto the ceremony of the canonization of Jacinta and Francisco took place and the whole world rejoiced.
The statement of canonization by Pope Francis was made in Portuguese:
“For the honor of the Blessed Trinity, the exaltation of the Catholic faith and the increase of the Christian life, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and our own, after due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother bishops, we declare and define Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto, be saints and we enroll them among the saints, decreeing that they are to be venerated as such by the whole Church. In the name of the Holy Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
Fatima May 13 2017 will be a year we will never forget. We will carry this dearly in our hearts forever.
