Francis and the Vatican's Assembly Line of Saints CLERICAL WHISPERS - September 11, 2016 ... Paul II died, there was a very strong feeling that there had simply been too many saints made, that the process was being cheapened," said Austen Ivereigh, author of The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope.

Jacques Hamel, killed while saying Mass in ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/sdJ6VHxirv0/recollections-martyrdom-age-terrorism
