VATICAN CITY - Pope Benedict proclaimed two Italian priests and a Spanish nun as saints on Sunday, urging the faithful to follow their examples of a holy life devoted to charity.

In a solemn ceremony in St. Peter's Square, the pope canonized Italians Guido Maria Conforti and Father Luigi Guanella and Spaniard Bonifacia Rodriguez De Castro, whose efforts to protect women workers upset local clergy at the time.
