HighlanderRPI: When a Pope dies, is he being promoted or fired?


It is not always clear.  For instance, for Formosus it was both - a couple times each

Pope Francis was short for this Earth because he was a fan of sick beats.

Beatification is kind of a back-handed compliment. You're just a local minor league saint, not a big time Saint. You're like Crash Davis except you're not supposed to get laid.

Last year, Francis approved a miracle attributed to the intercession of John Paul I - that of the recovery of a critically ill 11-year-old girl in 2011 in Buenos Aires, the hometown of the current pope. Now a young woman, Candela Giarda told a Vatican press conference last week via a video message that she had wanted to attend the ceremony but couldn't because she recently broke a foot working out in a gym.

If only there was some kind of magical, lets say miraculous even, way that her foot could be healed so she could attend.  But magic isn't real, ah well.

You should get your keyboard checked or have it replaced because your "I" key seems to be malfunctioning.  Looks like when you press it twice in a row it accidentally adds a third one in.

After all, everyone knows there wasn't a third Godfather.

I'm still waiting in the queue.

My miracles are:
(1) I farted when I was 12 and a little girl in Brazil didn't have cancer.
(2) When I was 6, I prayed that the mean kid down the street would die and he moved away that summer. Just as good.
(3) My mother said that I wouldn't amount to anything and I got a paper route which she thought was a miracle.

I'm still waiting for the sainthood stuff.

If they did it earlier, I'd assume it was moving along the path for full canonization.  By now, I'd assume that he'd be left where he is.

This dude's first act was selling some expensive papal robes or whatnot and give the money to the poor. I have always thought his death was suspicious.

...Kinda interesting process, actually.  And for that matter, you can't beat the names of the agencies involved.  I mean, the Dicastery For The Causes of The Saints sounds pretty awesome, and having a job where your actual title is Advocatus Diabolii or Promotor Justitiae is pretty cool.

The real question is: Is "The Godfather Part III" a Christmas movie?

No.  There is a convoluted process.  And it even involves assigning a guy who's title is literally The Devil's Advocate, who's job it is to savage the candidate's character to the best of their ability.  I'm not saying someone might not be considered a dead lock for sainthood, but realize you will have your entire life drug through the mud before you get sainted.

All those years Christopher Hitchens was right there and they never offered him the gig.

FTA:
In his short-lived papacy, which concluded with the discovery of his body in his bedroom in the Apostolic Palace, John Paul I immediately established a simple, direct way of communicating with the faithful in the addresses he gave, a style change considered revolutionary considering the stuffiness of the environment of church hierarchy.

Beatifying John Paul I based on the hopeful promise of his 33-day reign makes as much sense as awarding a Nobel Peace Prize to a U.S. President in the first months of his term based on the hopeful tone of his campaign and early remarks/actions.

... Oh, wait ...

Advocatus Diaboli was the name of my new Melodic Black Metal album name and band tour, until some other band did it first.
