Pro-Papal States Saints and Martyrs

The canons are pretty clear, and make no exception for the pope. The Papal States are not the same thing as the Kingdom of God (and it is probably sacrilegious to equate them in such a way); therefore, it is flawed logic to attempt to justify papal temporal power by linking it to God's kingdom. It's also ironic to suggest it prevents caesaropapism when it turns the pope into a caesar.
