Why would YOU object? anyone interested in Day's cause would pray for success. That includes Cardinal Dolan. he has that prerogative as a theologian. My own opinion is irrelevant. I am only superficially acquainted with Day's history. i'll wait and see. I AM positive Day is in heaven; she is saved by the grace of Our Lord. Sainthood is a different kind of importance. It involves, as I said, heroic and outstanding Christian faith and virtue.

What and how many Day's sins may have been; she confessed all of them before her death. "Church Leaders" didn't have to absolve her; a regular Catholic priest or her bishop heard her confession. She was absolved; her sins were washed away in the blood of Jesus Christ. Because that is the act of penitence God demands of a sinner. After this confession/pardon, accusations END.

"Enlighten me Dread, is leftist approval now the main consideration for sainthood?"

No; but God will be the judge of anticatholic approval as well as leftist slant. God's not a party pundit.

Your attitude is insolent every time you address me in these matters. Kindly needle the other side too. Rich D, is for instance a servant of the devil. Yet you're on his team.

Father Pfleger in Chicago far as I know is a clergyman with his own conscience. He isn't a Muslim or a serial killer. Just politically a Catholic of dubious convictions. I hope he comes to his senses.

I hope You do too.

A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
