Well the trouble is that they canonized somebody at the drop of a hat- I guess it was a PR stunt in as much as a sincere effort to get the church off the ground.

I would say modern day folks who would deserve such a title would be Mother Theresa and the late Pope. Although I didn't hold with much of John Paul's conservative orthodox beliefs, he at least was a "people" pope which the church needed.

So it's Canon's fault and not Microsoft

Yeah, HP tried to get into the act but they were crowded out.


I'm thinking there'll be a movement for Angelina Jolie.

St Lara

Perhaps St Britney for Patron of Motherhood

Or for humility, St Paris
