Further on the Beatification v. Canonization Infallibility Issue
Since it came up in a recent post on JPII's impending beatification, here is a link to a post on Angelqueen giving Fr. Faber's take on the issue back in 1848. I give the link only, because posting a pdf to blogger such that it can be read is a total mystery to such a one as me. The money quote for me: "Thus a man who should maintain that a beatification was erroneous and a cultus approbatus wrong, would not be guilty of heresy, but of scandal and temerity." I don't think I want to be guilty of either.
