Husband and wife become saints - level 1
There is a big meeting in the Vatican. It is a meeting of Catholics. The pope is there, too. He makes a husband and wife saints. He makes them saints in one day. This is the first time in history.
The couple lived in France. They lived in the 19th century. They had five daughters. All of them were nuns.
Difficult words: saint (a person who was very good and is important to religion), had (past of “is”), were (past of “are”), nun (nuns are women who live together and serve God).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
