Black Is White. Up Is Down. Popes John Paul I and Paul VI to Be Beatified???
Paul VI. Paul VI?!? Paul VI?? Paul VI!!!!!???!!!
Oh, and JPI while we're at it.
The flagship of the N.O. "conservative", the National Catholic Register, has the story in full. Some excerpts:
ROME, Italy — A former head of the Vatican’s congregation on saints’ causes said Pope Benedict XVI could beatify his predecessors Pope John Paul I and Pope Paul VI during the upcoming Year of Faith.
After the beatification of John Paul II in May of 2011, Pope Benedict’s possible beatifications of John Paul I and Paul VI would be the first time in history that a Pope has beatified three of his predecessors.
Pope Benedict’s Year of Faith is slated to begin on Oct. 11 and will serve to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council.
The miracle attributed to the Servant of God Paul VI — who made Joseph Ratzinger a cardinal — is the healing of a baby inside its mother’s womb.
