|Venerable John Paul I|
A document advancing the beatification of John Paul I is ready, and will be given to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints this autumn, according to the emeritus Secretary of State.
Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone announced the milestone during his homily at Mass in the Belluno cathedral July 20.
The beatification process of John Paul I had been slowed because the “positio” had not been completed. The positio is the document that the postulator prepares, presenting the “pros” and “cons” of a person's possible beatification...
Shortly after his death, requests to begin his beatification process came from many parts of the world. These requests were formalized in 1990, with a document signed by 226 Brazilian bishops.

I only have a few thoughts.
- Canonize all the post-concilliar pontiffs, including (as Fr. Reese said) Blessed Francis
- What exactly did this cardinal/Pope do that was so extraordinary again?
- Brazilian Bishops leading the way in pushing for the canonization when all around them the country goes into apostasy
- Prudence is seriously lacking in this machine
On the happy front, its my Feast Day!
