Beatification and canonization of Saint Charbel

On December 5, 1965, Pope Paul VI headed the ceremony of canonizing father Charbel at the conclusion of the Second Vatican Synod.
In the year 1975 Pope Paul VI decided to accept the miracle in order to declare the beatified Charbel as a Saint, and that was fulfilled in an international ceremony on Oct. 9, 1977.Copyright Image
