In his June 19 audience with Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Pope Francis also approved decrees on the heroic virtues of four other Servants of God. Like Schuman, they may now be honored as Venerable: Father Severino Fabriani (1792-1849), an Italian diocesan priest, founder of the Congregation of the Daughters of Providence for Deaf-mutes Sister Aniela Róza Godecka (1861-1937), the Polish foundress of the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sister Orsola Donati (1849-1935), an Italian religious of the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Mother of Sorrows Sister María Stella of Jesus (née María Aurelia Iglesias Fidalgo) (1899-1982), a Spanish religious of the Congregation of the Religious of Mary Immaculate Pope Francis also approved a decree on a miracle attributed to the intercession of a German Jesuit priest, Venerable Johann Philipp Jeningen (1642-1704), paving the way for his beatification. Finally, the Pontiff approved a decree on the martyrdom of the Servants of God Sister Maria Paschalis Jahn (née Maria Magdalena) and nine companions, religious of the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Elizabeth, thus paving the way for their beatification. The ten sisters were killed by Soviet soldiers n Poland and the Czech Republic in 1945, out of hatred for the faith.
