Should Pope John Paul II be canonized as a Catholic Saint after his beatification?
Pope John Paul II will soon be beatified. The nexr step would be canonization to sainthood. This is usually a long process with many requirements.
or we could just pretend he never existed since he, like other popes likes to protect pedophiles and does nothing to help end prejudism.
I believe a saint is defined as some one who has lead an exemplary life. Sometime this is so obvious that mankind or institutions can see this.
However, in the majority of cases, there are many saints who go unnoticed and have lived in obscurity. No one becomes a saint for the sake of public recognition only. Each religion has there conditions for an exemplary life. Many of us define exemplary life in our own way.
Therefore, there are many more saints than what the Catholic Church sees. To me what they see is irrelevant. Because the eyes of the Church is unreliable. The Church have even killed many saints cruelly by burning them to the stakes
Many see saints in their personal life. He may be a father who did his best to provide for his children under difficult conditions. A soldier who sacrificed his life so that others could be free. A fireman who risked his life. A President who has to make a right decision that was unpopular . These men and women need not be perfect to be a saints. You might be one even though there is no beatification or canonization.
Pope John Paul to me is a saint, whether he is canonized or not. Unlike other Christians, he was able to keep his mind open wide enough to be inspired by God. He was honest enough to admit the wrong doings of the Church.
