Got Me

    I can’t believe I fell for it. I spent all evening yesterday looking for further information on the net and on the 24 hour news. After checking the Vatican website for info I couldn’t understand why I couldn’t find any press releases or related information. I was even shocked at the callousness of the closing statement “sucks to be them”. My only excuse for taking the bait is that I was tired.

    Here in the UK the BBC normally does an April fools day story and as a child I saw the “spagetti grows in trees” gag with pasta pickers harvesting spagetti from trees. I really did believe that pasta grew on trees until I was well into my teens. You can find it on youtube if you type in “spaghetti grows on trees”. Have fun.

    I think it is premature and was actually relieved by the headline. Too bad it’s April Fool’s! There is reason to doubt the validity of the single claimed miracle. There are also other questions not being addressed in the rush to sainthood. What’s the hurry? Are we afraid a closer look may result in stopping the process?

    +JMJ+ This was great! It really had me going. I thought it was a great AFD joke.

    Ok that was mean.

    Would it really be a bad thing if what Kathryn wrote happened? I will be first to admit that I am not an expert on the process of sainthood. That said, my sense is that most saints don’t have a process that started within a few years of their death. My concern is that we are trying to force the issue and make him one now. If he is a saint (and he probably is) he will be declared one. Now doesn’t matter.
