Good news! Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha is up for canonisation. No word if Theresa Spence with launch an injunction.
The Vatican has cleared the way for the canonization of 7 new saints, including Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and Blessed Marianne Cope.
On December 19, Pope Benedict XVI approved a series of decrees by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, advancing a number of candidates toward canonization or beatification.
In 7 cases, involving candidates who have already been beatified, the decrees testified to the authenticity of a miracle attributed to the candidate’s intercession. This fulfills the requirements for canonization in these cases. They include two American women.
- Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-1680), the “Lilly of the Mohawks,” was born in upstate New York and lived both there and in Canada. Baptized by Jesuit missionaries on Easter Sunday in 1676, she died in Quebec 4 years later. Her reputation for sanctity spread quickly, and in 1980 she was beatified by Pope John Paul II. She was the first Native American to be beatified, and will be the first canonized.

You know- when the steam has gone out of something, huffing and puffing won't bring it back. "Occupy Niagara" has an abysmal showing.
Sean Penn proves how classy he is by calling a woman- his "Colors" co-star, Maria Conchito Alonso- "a pig":
Alonso says the conversation escalated when Penn accused Alonso’s brother of attempting to assassinate Chavez, which Alonso says is not true.
“So I’m like, ‘You are in favor of Hugo Chavez and [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad.’ Because I also saw a picture of footage from TV where Chavez and Ahmadinejad are together and Sean Penn is next to them. And, you know, he‘s like ’I’ve never said that about Ahmadinejad. You’re a pig.’ And I go to him, ‘And you are a communist, Sean Penn!’”
Someone has him pegged.
If you love Chavez so much, Sean Penn, do marry him.
It doesn't pay to ban Baby Jesus before Christmas:
The battle over a nativity scene in Athens, Texas, reached new heights this weekend when up to 5,000 supporters flooded the town square. Their purpose? To stand firmly opposed to the attacks a prominent atheist group has waged on the religious display.
As the Blaze reported earlier this month, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, a group that frequently targets the presence of faith and religion in the public square, is demanding that a nativity scene be removed from public property.
And now, let us descend on the Christmas season with the help of "Jingle Bark" dogs.
