Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday gave the Roman Catholic Church four new saints, including an Indian woman whose canonization is seen as a morale boost to Christians in India. The other new saints are: Gaetano Errico, a Neapolitan priest who founded a missionary order in the 19th century; Sister Maria Bernarda, born Verena Buetler in Switzerland in 1848, who worked as a nun in Ecuador and Colombia; and Narcisa de Jesus Martillo Moran, a 19th century laywoman from Ecuador who helped the sick and the poor.
