Pope Benedict XVI declared on Saturday evening (morning in Italy), February 18, 2012, that Blessed Pedro Calungsod, a Filipino lay catechist, will be canonized or recognized as a saint on October 21, 2012 in Vatican City.

Calungsod, a young catechist from the Visayas, was martyred in Guam in 1672 with a Spanish Jesuit priest, who is now Blessed Diego Luis de San Vitores. The latter was beatified by Blessed Pope John Paul II in 2000.
