We will could be calling him "Venerable" John Paul II by Christmas - or so this story from Inside Catholic implies.

The Congregation for Saints Causes has voted unanimously that John Paul II be recognized as having "heroically lived the Christian virtues" and be declared "venerable". All that is necessary is for Pope Benedict to sign the decree and December is usually one time of the year when the Pope does so.

I'm re-reading George Weigel's biography right now and feel that I am reading it for the first time. I have felt a great deal of regret that I missed so much of his early years: the significance of his election, the drama of his first trip to Poland, etc. I didn't come to until he had been Pope for nearly 8 years and so I didn't witness the early impact of his relative youth and incredible energy, warmth, and joy.

And I only saw him at the end of his life - far away on the rolling platform that enabled him to navigate the center aisle of St. Peter's in his old age.

But I miss him. And I am truly delighted to see his cause moving so quickly.

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
