Healing of Colombian man could pave way for John Paul II canonization
#19
The process of canonizing has a long tradition of changing. The Devil's Advocate was only around for 300 or so years. The office was invented by a Pope, it can be deleted by a Pope, and it can be brought back again. The "waiting period" has changed too. The number of miracles required has changed. And don't forget that for the first thousand or so years saints were made by public acclaim. I doubt seriously that will ever return.. My only point is that the process has changed and will continue to do so. That being said, I think waiting 50 years after a person's death is a good idea. I think the waiting period is probably most important factor in our day and age for a number of reasons.
