His Eminence Malcolm Ranjith Cardinal says that the victims of the Easter Sunday terrorist attack will be elevated to sainthood.
They can be named saints because they sacrificed their lives for their faith, the cardinals say.
To name someone as a saint, a period of five years should pass after his death.
April 21 marks five years since the Easter Sunday terror attacks.
On that day, the Catholic Church decided to name all those who died in churches as saints.
