VATICAN CITY :
Vatican city on Sunday witnessed the first Indian layman being deigned as a saint by the Pope. Devasahayam Pillai became the first Indian layman to be canonised.

Devasahayam was recommended for the process of Beatification by the Vatican in 2004, at the request of the Kottar diocese, Tamil Nadu Bishops’ Council and the Conference of Catholic Bishops of India.

Devasahayam Pillai, who embraced Christianity in the 18th century, was on Sunday declared a saint by Pope Francis at the Vatican, becoming the first Indian layman to be canonised.

Pope Francis canonised Blessed Devasahayam Pillai along with nine other Blesseds during a Canonisation Mass in St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.
