    Frankly, I don’t think God cares much about whom we canonize – or whether we ever canonize anyone. I’m all for holding up exemplary lives as role models, but that’s about it.

    Well not by your own mythos. Not till the Raising of the Dead and given new bodies then filing in for the final Judgment. Then the Heaven will be on Earth.

    One of the signs of insanity is when the pictures start talking to you.

    I thought someone might say you have to be dead first. But obviously, rules don’t mean anything anymore.
    In any case, that would really irritate me, since his second-last job was running the end of the Inquisition.

    Of COURSE God cares, He had many a tie set up for us to find out about saints we didnt even know about, and provided the miracles so we would know they are in Heaven.

    His point is to give us models we can know for sure are in Heaven. Those on Earth we just can’t know. Like Fr. John Corappi, some say he’s innocent, others say not. Who can know for sure. And there are many a person we consider Holy who falls into Heresy in the end, and those who repent in the end. The Church is very careful about who gets cannonized, its not some toss of the darts.
