Carlo Agudis, from Lombardy, died of leukemia in 2006 at the age of 15 and became a model of Christian life for many young believers, as well as a kind of “patron saint of the Internet”. As a Roman Catholic next year, he will be canonized in Assisi on Oct. 10, 2020, Pope Francis said during a homily on the new canonization on Monday, the ANSA news agency reported.

On May 23, after another miracle of Agudis was recognized, the head of the diocese declared him eligible for sainthood. The second miracle that earned him canonization was the miraculous healing of a young woman in Costa Rica.

The canonization process for Carlo Agutis has been accelerated and he will be canonized by Pope Francis alongside Blessed Giuseppe Alemanno, founder of the Consolata Missions.

Pope Francis announced on Monday the canonization of Canadian nun Marie-Leonie Paradis and nun from Luca Elena Guevara, as well as the “11 Martyrs of Damascus” – Emmanuel Ruiz and seven archbishops. Friars Minor, Francis, Abdel Muti and Raphael Mazabki.

The 87-year-old Argentine pontiff said the exact date for canonization had not yet been established.
