Saint G.K. Chesterton? Some delight, others worry about effort to canonize writer

Christians and Jews are mounting campaigns for and against a path to sainthood for British writer G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936), one of the world’s best-known Catholic converts.

Roman Catholic Bishop Peter Doyle of Northampton, where Chesterton lived and worked, has ordered an examination of Chesterton’s life — the first step in what is likely to be a long and unpredictable process toward canonization.

Chesterton’s many admirers delighted in the news.

“There is a growing devotion to this life-changing writer,” said Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society, who has pushed the church to explore a formal declaration of sainthood for a man he called “a maker of converts.” ...

The whole concept of making one a "saint" flies in the face of "all have sinned and fallen short" man is constantly looking for ways to equate God and man,a amn may be good in all of his external ways but if the heart be examined then what he is will be exposed.The day of judgement is the appointed time to judge whether or not someone is a saint and the judge is God not man.

Yes I agree Mike. Some say terrible things about Erasmus which they ought not to do.

I think it was Chesterton who said something like: "God is like the sun. You can't look at it but without it you can't look at anything."

Not bad.

Saint or not, G.K. Chesterton's "The Everlasting Man" is a terrific read.

Chesterton was anti-Semitic wasn't he. He wrote about King Edwards expulsion of the Jews, from England in the 13th century as a just monarch for doing so.
Having said that some of the popes were anti-Semitic too.

Also he was a journalist! Can journalists be saints?

I get so disgusted about reading something Catholic almost everyday. A saint is a Christian, and one that is living. CATHOLICS ARE NOT CHRISTIANS, AND ARE NOT SAINTS! They can use their man made rituals to call whoever they want saints, but they are not saints in the eyes of God.
