I was asked, “What are all these Pope canonizations really about, anyway? Are they all saints? Paul VI? Every Pope? Except… like … any Pius? Really?”
I wrote about this a long time ago. More and more people, I now read, are coming around to what I proposed many moons back.
Even as many are now asking pretty good questions about both interpretation and, at last, content, these canonizations are also about putting the definitive Seal of Approval on Vatican II™. You could say it is a canonization of the Council.
They are not only that. They are also that.
Another point we have to wonder about is how some of the underlying principles in arguments for the heroic life of virtue is drifting or evolving. I detect a shift. This is also something I have written in before.
So, we may as well lean back and watch the next couple of days with attention and patience.
I am observing them by paying less attention to all the newsie stuff which I usually follow with laser focus.
