Pope Francis calls consistory to approve canonization of Fatima seers

The consistory to approve the canonization of Blesseds Francisco and Jacinta Marto will take place on April 20.

Their cousin Lucia [Pictured on the left] entered the Institute of the Sisters of St Dorothy and, later, obtained permission to enter the Carmelite convent of St Teresa in Coimbra, where she resided until her death in 2005 at the age of 97.

Following her death, Pope Benedict XVI waived the five-year waiting period before her Cause could open. Bishop Virgilio Antunes of Coimbra formally closed the local phase of investigation into her life and holiness last month and forwarded the information to the Vatican.
