Vatican     POPE TO BEATIFY FIVE PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS ON SUNDAY
Pope John Paul II will proclaim five new blesseds on Sunday, during a Mass celebrated in St Peter's Square.
   He will beatify two priests - a Colombian and a German - and three religious founders of congregations - a Swede, an Italian, and an Indian.
   The Colombian blessed, Mariano de Jesus Hoyos Euse, was a simple country priest ordained in 1872, who lives an ascetic life close to the sick and poor while facing threats from military and paramilitary groups.
   German-born Redemptorist Francis Xavier Seelos spent most of his life as a parish priest and itinerant missionary in the eastern United States.
