Titus Brandsma to be Canonized by Pope Francis

Today, Friday 4th March 2022, at 10.30am, the Ordinary Public Consistory led by Pope Francis convened in the Consistory Hall of the Vatican Apostolic Palace.

After the recitation of Terce, the Holy Father announced the canonization of Blessed Titus Brandsma, O. Carm. The canonization will take place on Sunday, May 15, 2022, in St Peter’s Square. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only the Postulator General of the Order was able to take part in the Consistory.

At last, Fr Titus, after 80 years from his death and 37 from his beatification, can be venerated as a Saint by the entire Catholic Church.

The Carmelite Order, the Church in Holland as well as the entire Carmelite Family joyfully welcome this much awaited announcement.
