I am delighted that a young person in the laity is to be canonized.  Laudate Dominum, Deo Gratius.

"If there’s one thing the new crop of saints who will be canonised this weekend would appear to have to say about holiness, it’s that being virtuous is something that everyone, religious and lay alike, can attain. Source: Crux."

"Blessed Sulprizio was beatified by Paul VI, who will be canonised with him this Sunday, in 1963. In his homily, Paul VI said Sulprizio was an example for young people of how “the period of youth should not be considered the age of free passions, of inevitable falls, of invincible crises, of decadent pessimism, of harmful selfishness. Rather, he will tell you how being young is a grace.”
