I’m not sure where he is this week but I know where he isn’t… He isn’t on Rome’s list of newly minted ‘Saints’!!!!!! This is shocking news really for who is more saintly than Tilling???
Pope Benedict XVI has named seven new saints, including for the first time a Native American, praising their “heroic courage” in a year when the Catholic Church is seeking to counter the rising tide of secularism in the West.
Kateri Tekakwitha, informally known as “Lily of the Mohawks” and a symbol of hope for American Indians for centuries, was canonised in a lavish ceremony in St Peter’s Square that followed her beatification in 1980 by the late Pope John Paul II.
Under a bright autumn sun, the pope delivered a homily praising all seven new saints, saying they “lived their lives in total consecration to God and in generous service to their brothers”.
Catholics… Overlooking real Saints like Tilling and Thompson and Bolin and Watts for people I’ve never heard of. Absurdly appalling.
