Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 21) — Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle is set to lead the beatification ceremony of Venerable Pauline Marie Jaricot in France next year.

The Roman Archdiocese of Manila on Thursday said Tagle, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, has been appointed by Pope Francis.

The former archbishop will oversee the beatification rites on May 22, 2022 in Lyon.

Tagle's new role is just one of the many key posts he's been given this year. In February, he was appointed to the Administration of the Patrimony of the Holy See, a powerful body that serves as the Vatican's central bank. He became part of the Congregation for the Eastern Churches last June.

Through beatification, the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of Saints conducts an intensive investigation of any deceased person's life, writings, and virtues, and, except in the case of martyrs, proof of one miracle worked by God through their intercession.

If they meet all these requirements, the pope gives them the title "Blessed" and such other decrees they may be honored or venerated.

It was on Feb. 25, 1963 when Jaricot was declared Venerable by Saint John XXIII. Born in 1799, she founded the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of Faith and the Association of Living Rosary.
