Well, Pope Paul VI will be the latest modern Pope to be canonized on October 14. Being proclaimed a Saint is becoming a perk of the job apparently, in lieu of a gold watch. If Pope Francis were really concerned with clericalism, he would have to look no farther than this ominous trend. Prior to Saint Pope Pius X, the last Pope to be canonized was Pius V, who was canonized in 1712 almost a century and a half after his death. Oh well, we live in a time of cheap grace and PopeWatch has no doubt that the canonization machine set up for contemporary popes is worth as much as the cheap grace. If Paul VI can be a Saint, perhaps there is hope for all of us who are mediocre or worse at our jobs, and allow chaos to reign because of our weakness.
