Consistory of Causes of Canonization Set for Feb. 26

VATICAN CITY, FEB. 1, 2002 (Zenit.org).- The date of the canonization of Padre Pio, Josemaría Escrivá and Juan Diego likely will be published Feb. 26.

That is a fair guess based on the calendar of papal celebrations this month. The Vatican Press Office published the calendar today. On Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 11 a.m. a consistory of cardinals will be held in the Vatican for a few causes of canonization.

Church sources in Mexico say Juan Diego´s canonization might take place in Mexico City on July 30, during a papal visit.
