OUR PATRON CANONIZED

On July 3, 2008, Pope Benedict XVI signed two
decrees promulgating the heroic virtues of Nuno and
recognizing the authenticity of a miracle (the healing
of a blind woman in Portugal).  By these acts, the Holy
Father formally canonized Saint Friar Nuno de Santa
Maria Alvarez Pereira.  The public celebration of his
canonization took place on April 26,2009.  
His feast
has been fixed universally in the Roman Calendar as
November 6th.
