Yes, a great occasion for THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
and it's many followers, who are, I believe arriving from
All corners of the world to witness the great event>

The Canonisation of two Popes.

BUT

I honestly think there are many amazing people out there in the world
who have gone through so much in various ways, people who
have contributed enormously to society .. some .. in public,
others in private, ie..suffering long trying illnesses in heroic fashion..

Just wondering why one must be a member of the
In order to be considered for SAINTHOOD.

They have to look for a miracle to be attributed to these Popes
as a kind of passport for Sainthood..

But look at, for example. PROFESSOR STEPHEN HAWKING..
who has spent years wheelchair bound in a 'locked on syndrome'
100%physically disabled! and. yet he possesses one of the finest minds on the planet,
There is a miracle shining bright for everyone to see, no one has to look
for it.

Strange old world we live in.

A most well thought out post if I may say Grace, on this day of the Canonisation
of the two Popes and quite right in your assumption that there are those who
would 'qualify' equally - if not more so!
No more fitting than the example which you give in PROFESSOR STEPHEN HAWKING
and this young man springs to mind with his amazing attitude to his short time left on
Earth.
