Blessed Maria Rita Lopes Pontes, known to Catholics around Brazil as Sr. Dulce, will be canonized by Pope Francis at the Vatican Oct. 13, 2019. Born in 1914 in the northeastern state of Bahia, Sr. Dulce is revered for having given up the comforts that come with being brought up in a middle-class family to devote herself to the homeless and the sick. She is pictured in an undated photo. (CNS/Archdiocese of Sao Salvador da Bahia)
