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 predecessor‚Äôs ‚Äúheroic virtues.‚ÄĚ
Paul VI is now considered ‚Äúvenerable‚ÄĚ in the Catholic Church, and needs the Vatican to recognize a miracle due to his intercession in order to be beatified, or declared ‚Äúblessed.‚ÄĚ 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
