Pope John XXIII Is NOT A Saint!

Check YouTube for Bergamo Virus videos.

Bergamo has become Italy’s EPICENTER for COVID-19.

Bergamo is Pope John XXIII’s hometown. 

If Pope John XXIII was a Saint he would NOT let this happen to Bergamo. Simple as that. QED.

Pope John XXIII was an exceptional human being and an outstanding pope.

He is NOT called the ‘Good Pope’ for nothing.

You could trust John XXIII — and thousands, if not more, did.

He is credited with personally saving thousands of Jews during WW II — and that was way before he became pope.

Per Catholic tradition Saints sit on the right side of God (quite literally).

So, IF John XXIII was a Saint, he would be seated close to God.

John XXIII would not sit and let humanity suffer — and he would definitely intervene to help Bergamo.

IF John XXIII is a Saint Bergamo would NOT be the epicenter for COVID-19.

I have studied Pope John XXIII.

I wrote a book about him (below).

Trust me on this. I have no axe to grind.

Pope John XXIII is NOT a Saint.

Pope Paul VI Was A Very Decent Human Being, But He Was NO Saint!

Pope Paul VI (1897 – 1978), pope from 1963 to 1978, was a GOOD pope, he was also an outstanding human being and had a heart of gold. I like Paul VI. He was a likeable person.

But he is NO Saint. That is not a sin. We can’t all be saints.

The Vatican’s preference of late to try and canonize all recent popes, within just decades of their demise, is DEVALUING the sanctity of sainthood.

The rush to make John Paul II to a saint was unbecoming and it does not sit well with many.

Pope John XXIII earned his and his took longer.

I am sure that Paul VI will be the first to agree that he is NOT a saint.

He had issues and made some serious miscalculations that are still impacting the WORLD when it comes to birth control (his infamous Humanae vitae) and sexuality. And despite his moralistic views on the later, even today there are questions as to HIS sexuality. He was NO saint.

I will, time permitting, elaborate on this in the coming weeks, BUT I want to go on record that I, for one, feel very strongly that canonizing Paul VI, this early and this quickly, is plain wrong and crazy.

With Pope Francis Approving 2nd Miracle, Mother Teresa Will Be Made A Saint On My Birthday, September 4, 2016.

by Anura Guruge

Pope Francis approved the second miracle attributed to Mother Teresa on March 15, 2016.

That she would be canonized, i.e., made a Catholic Saint, was never in doubt. Her process for canonization, i.e., the ‘cause for canonization‘, was ‘fast tracked’ by the Vatican — that means the Vatican started working on her ’cause’ without waiting for the usual 5-year grace period after a person’s death. As a result, as shown in table below she reached the first rung of the canonization process, being declared ‘Venerable’, 5 years and 3 months after a death. She was ‘Beatified’, i.e., made ‘Blessed‘, within 6 years 45 days of her death — a RECORD until it was eclipsed by one even more FAMOUS (and popular) than her, Pope John Paul II.

But, her canonization stalled a bit after that. John Paul II went from ‘Blessed’ to ‘Saint’ in 3 years. It will be 12 years 11 months for Mother Teresa. 19 years since her death. That is still PLENTY FAST. Maybe too fast.

The September 4th date, other than it being my birthday, happens to be the nearest Sunday to the death of her death, September 5.

Pope Francis THE Most Popular Pope Ever? Not Even CLOSE! Bl. John ‘Good Pope’ XXIII (#262) Towered Over Him.

Not even close. This pope is an Internet pope. If the Internet had been around when John XXIII reigned people would have gone ga-ga.

This pope, with his feet washing etc., is TRYING to emulate John XXIII.

He does NOT have John’s natural touch.

John, was a legend, especially for what he did for the Jews during WW II, before he became pope. Francis’ track record in Argentina has some major red flags when it comes to human rights!

He is NOT a natural. He is trying to play the part.

On April 27 this year, John will become Pope St. John XXIII. Francis has a long way to go.

Don’t get me wrong. Francis is a decent pope. A trillion times better than the previous German dandy. But lets NOT get carried away.

Francis, for those of us who have to read the chicken entrails daily, is still but words.

John was substance. John was action. By this stage of his papacy, John had called for Vatican II, created cardinals and made major structural changes. In contrast all we get from Francis is contradictory words.

Most popular pope, STILL:
Bl. John XXIII (#262).

Did they botch Mandela’s embalming?

Where is Nelson Mandela’s body?
Dec. 12, 2013.

I found this last night from South Africa.

No PLANS to release Madiba pics.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was never a Saint per se.

But, he was an exemplary human being with a heart of gold and a great set of values.

Not so when it comes to his extended, splintered, multi-tier family.
Fully understand and appreciate that many went through A LOT
in the past and that some did a great deal of good for the cause.
As such they, though not all, are entitled to try and
profit as much as possible from their GREAT MAN.

But, it would be a shame if this is all but a ploy to
get big bucks for photo exclusives.

Then again, knowing South Africa’s propensity for getting this wrong —
they could very easily botched the embalming.

I am sure we will find out soon enough.
