Pope Francis Praises Two New Blesseds

September 15, 2019. Benedetta Bianchi Porro, Father Riccardo Henkes

Pope Francis praised the memory of two newly named blesseds on September 15, 2019, after praying the noonday Angelus with the crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

Proclaimed blessed at Forli yesterday was Benedetta Bianchi Porro, who died in 1964 when she was only 28,” the Pope said. “Her whole life was marked by illness, and the Lord gave her the grace to endure it, rather, to transform it into a luminous testimony of faith and love.

“And, proclaimed Blessed today at Limburg, Germany, is Father Riccardo Henkes, Pallotine priest killed out of hatred for the faith at Dachau in 1945. May the example of these two courageous disciples of Christ sustain our path to sanctity also — an applause for the new Blesseds!”
