The Catholic and Orthodox Church uses canonization to declare a deceased person as a saint.which implies including her name in the canon (list of recognized saints) and permission to venerate her, recognizing her power before God.

During Christianity, people were recognized as saints without the need for a formal process; However, this changed in the Middle Ages.

In the case of Catholicism, the Church must carry out an exhaustive investigation of the life of the person to be sanctified and there are four ways to achieve the appointment: the path of heroic virtues; the path of martyrdom; that of exceptional causes, confirmed by an ancient cult and written sources; and that of the offer of life.

Furthermore, it is an essential requirement who has performed at least two miracles (or one in the case of being a martyr). Canonization is made in a solemn papal declaration and a feast day is assigned for liturgical veneration.

There is no established period to carry out the canonization of a character, since there are even cases like that of Saint Peter Damian who was canonized until 756 years after his death or, on the contrary, the case of Saint Anthony of Padua who was named until 352 days after his death.

The last canonization took place in October 2019, when the Pope declared Cardinal John Henry Newman and Sister Dulce, from Brazil, saints.
