Don’t know why but over the last few days there has been an interest in ‘The Blogger‘ page (for a change).
Well, it isn’t as if I hide myself under a bushel — though I know I will not fit under a bushel.
When I checked to see what it said on ‘The Blogger‘ I nearly blushed. I hadn’t updated it in years. So today I went to town. Put way TOO MUCH stuff. Maybe that will stop people reading it.
So here is what it looks like now. Don’t read it here, just click on it and read the original.
With Pope Francis Approving 2nd Miracle, Mother Teresa Will Be Made A Saint On My Birthday, September 4, 2016.
Pope Francis approved the second miracle attributed to Mother Teresa on March 15, 2016.
That she would be canonized, i.e., made a Catholic Saint, was never in doubt. Her process for canonization, i.e., the ‘cause for canonization‘, was ‘fast tracked’ by the Vatican — that means the Vatican started working on her ’cause’ without waiting for the usual 5-year grace period after a person’s death. As a result, as shown in table below she reached the first rung of the canonization process, being declared ‘Venerable’, 5 years and 3 months after a death. She was ‘Beatified’, i.e., made ‘Blessed‘, within 6 years 45 days of her death — a RECORD until it was eclipsed by one even more FAMOUS (and popular) than her, Pope John Paul II.
But, her canonization stalled a bit after that. John Paul II went from ‘Blessed’ to ‘Saint’ in 3 years. It will be 12 years 11 months for Mother Teresa. 19 years since her death. That is still PLENTY FAST. Maybe too fast.
The September 4th date, other than it being my birthday, happens to be the nearest Sunday to the death of her death, September 5.
