Nuevos «santos» sin veneración popular

Duración 2:55 minutos

New "Saints" Without Popular Veneration

Pope Francis canonized seven candidates on Sunday. Among them were Oscar Romero and Paul VI. The sanctity of both of them is strongly disputed. Only about 60,000 faithful were present in St Peter's Square. As a comparison: For the canonization of John Paul II, 500,000 pilgrims travelled to Rome. sources in Rome said that for Paul VI almost no pilgrims showed up although he was an Italian, his canonisation was strongly supported by the Italian oligarch media, and his canonisation took place in Rome.

Benedict Did Not Show Up

The former Benedict XVI declined Pope Francis's invitation to attend yesterday's canonizations. The official reason: He is not as agile as he used to be. Benedict XVI already skipped Paul VI’s beatification in 2014. But in the same year, he was present at the canonization of John Paul II.

A Saint of Decline

The new alleged saint and left-wing activist, Monsignor Oscar Romero, was an El Salvador archbishop in the middle of an unprecedented decline of his Church which he did not prevent or which he perhaps even co-managed. Ninety-nine percent of the population of El Salvador was Catholic in 1950. With the radical liturgical changes after Second Vatican Council, an unprecedented apostasy to Protestant sects started. Now, the amount of Catholics is below 50% of the population.

Pain and Attacks – Was It His Own Fault?

Cardinal Robert Sarah welcomed the controversial canonization of Paul VI. Sarah called on Twitter to pray with confidence and joy to the alleged new saint whom he called a pontiff of pain who suffered many attacks and criticisms. As a pope, Paul VI led the Church into total turmoil which is still ongoing.

Now All Council Popes Are [Alleged] Saints

Bishop Bernard Fellay of the Priestly Society of Saint Pius X explained in an interview with Michael Davis why Paul VI was canonized. Quote: "They're canonizing Paul VI because they want to canonize the Council.»
