VATICAN CITY (CNS) — Pope Francis will beatify seven bishop-martyrs of the Eastern-rite Romanian Catholic Church on the last day of his apostolic visit to Romania May 31-June 2, who died during a fierce anti-religious campaign waged under the communist regime in Romania, which was then violently overthrown in 1989.
