1954: Pope Pius XII canonises Dominic Savio, who was 14 years old at the time of his death in March 1857, as a saint, making him the youngest non-martyr saint in the Roman Catholic Church. Savio had been studying to be a priest when he became ill and was considered eligible sainthood on the basis of his having displayed "heroic virtue" in his everyday life.
