Pope Paul VI, who guided the Catholic Church through a tumultuous period of change in the 1960s and 70s, took a crucial first step toward possible sainthood when Pope Benedict XVI on Thursday (Dec. 20) recognized his predecessorâ€™s â€śheroic virtues.â€ť
Paul VI is now considered â€śvenerableâ€ť in the Catholic Church, and needs the Vatican to recognize a miracle due to his intercession in order to be beatified, or declared â€śblessed.â€ť A second miracle would then elevate him to sainthood.
...to a religious system and mere, sinful men. Don't get me wrong, I take no pleasure in knowing that this man is condemned for all eternity. I am sad for him and anyone else who chooses to go through life being willfully ignorant.
I'm certain that one of Satans minions will be performing a "miracle" on Pope Johns behalf. Since Pope John Paul, now knowing that Purgatory is a fraud, is being tormented for all eternity, he won't be available to perform any miracles. All the faithful will believe in someones hoax or a counterfeit miracle and they will all have yet one more saint to pray to. Please start reading your bibles, people, and stop trusting your eternal security
