Well placed sources in the Holy See have informed me that Venerable Paul VI will probably be beatified on October 19, after the Synod of Bishops.
Take this with a grain of salt. Only Pope Francis can set the date but this is the date going around the rumor mills in the Vatican.
So is the Holy See in a rush to place in the altars the so-called Vatican II popes?
How about this pope?
No, can do? Why? We need the radical Jews and history-revisionists to give their assent before he gets beatified?
Since when did people of other faiths have a say in who we beatify, huh?
