CNN incorrectly reports : “Pope Francis canonized the first saints of his papacy — including the first ever honored from Colombia and Mexico.” He did indeed canonize Laura Montoya of Colombia and María Guadalupe García Zavala of Mexico, but the cannon already includes María Natividad de Jesús Sacramento Venegas, who was born in Zapotlanejo, Mexico, in 1868 and canonized in 2001. Not to mention, uh, Juan Diego and all these other male Mexican saints. In fact, check out a 2002 CNN article on the subject.
(The best thing about this news is that it brought me to the vatican website, which looks like it hasn’t been revamped since 1998. I guess I shouldn’t expect an institution that still preaches against birth control to be quite at web 2.0 levels…)
