From Pennsylvania comes news that Prince Gallitzin attains first rung to sainthood

The canonization cause of Prince Demetrius Augustine Gallitzin, the "Apostle of the Alleghenies" brining Catholicism to South-Central Pennsylvania has begun and he has been given the title of "Servant of God" while his cause progresses. To me this is long overdue - Prince Gallitzin was a Russian nobleman who gave up literally everything a person could desire (18th century wise) to minister in mission territory in what was then an untamed part of America. His sister who was a nun and Mother Superior also was a pioneer missionary.
