SORT BY Relevancy
This weekend, a lot of attention is being paid to the canonization of Pope John Paul II as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. According to the Catholic Church, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints investigates the life of a candidate for sainthood. Their requirements are: (1) that the person be dead; (2) that the person has lived in a "heroically virtuous" manner and pursued holiness in this life, and (3) that at least two verifiable miracles had occurred through intercession to that person. The Vatican conducts an intense investigation of a candidate's life and any miracles that are said to have occurred by that person's intercession before declaring him or her a "saint."
Now, if we are waiting on the Catholic Church, most of us don't stand a chance at becoming a saint. First, thank God, we are not dead. I’d rather be a living “ain’t” than a dead saint. In the Bible, the saints such as St. John and St. Peter were saints before they died and therefore remained saints after they died. Second, none of us have lived “heroically virtuous” lives and that is for sure. In fact, the Bible tells us that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” and that “all our righteousness are as filthy rags”. Third, no one has prayed to us to get a miracle and if they did, they could not get a miracle from us whether we are alive or dead. The only One who can give anybody a miracle is God through His Son Jesus Christ. That is why we should be glad the Catholic Church is not in charge of making people saints. God is, and according to God's Word, anyone can become a saint. Yes, ordinary people like you and me -- with all of our sins, faults, and failures -- can become saints.
MUSICAL SELECTION: "I'm a Saint," by Lecrae
There are many supporting the fast track for Pope John Paul II. We want to discuss Sainthood and what it means to us. Some of the aspects we can discuss is why do we need for Saints - is it support our faith? We can also venture into the healings attributed attributed to Saints. Why are some people healed and others are not? As you can see, there is a wide range of topics we can explore. Join us on THE MAN CAVE FORUM for lively and fun discussions each Wednesday at 7 p.m. (Pacific Time)>
