Carlo Acutis is the youngest contemporary person to be beatified, a path taken by two Portuguese shepherd children living in the early 1900s who were proclaimed Catholic saints in 2017.
How contemporary are we talking about? Because, before the Fatima children, there was also Saint Maria Goretti, 11 at her death in 1902, who was beatified in 1947 and canonised in 1950.
