I see that four more beatifications have been approved, of holy people in four countries on three continents. The beatification ceremonies themselves will be held in the countries where the new blesseds served the Church: Germany, Spain, Brazil and India. Most amazing, to me, is that the Beata in Brazil (a missionary sister from Spain who cared for the needy) died only in 1983. I wonder if she is the most "recent" of all Blesseds. Does anyone know of a Blessed who died even later than that?

Other than M. Teresa of Calcutta, I can't think of another.
