Martyrs recognized
Catholic News Service


An Italian priest who died in a Nazi concentration camp and two victims of Soviet-bloc regimes during the Cold War are among those recognized as martyrs by Pope Francis.

The church normally requires a miracle to be attributed to the intercession of a deceased Catholic before he or she may be beatified, but that requirement does not apply to recognized martyrs. A miracle is required before any blessed may be canonized.
