Reports from the Vatican said Pope Francis has approved Blessed Joseph Vaz as Sri Lanka’s first saint.

Reports said that the Pope had bent Vatican rules to bypass confirmation of a miracle in order to approve Blessed Joseph Vaz as a saint.

Pope Francis will now canonize Joseph Vaz, a 17th century missionary, during his visit to Sri Lanka in January.
