    To God Be all the Glory,
    I'm Glad that everyone here possessed a Huge Faith, but let us not forget that there is only one God. I'm not having a generalization but i observed that "many" (not all) of that same faith, treat one person just like it was a God. There is what we called the messenger of God, so let us not treat them as a God, the miracle that a person can make is from God, not himself alone.
    God Bless.

    my mom died recently, apr. 23, 2011, black saturday of lung cancer with so many complications and had been bedridden since january 2011... we had been praying the 3 o'clock prayer almost every time. she was taken by our Lord at 3 o'clock... and i really never intended for her burial to be on may 1, which is the feast of Divine Mercy and the day Pope John will be beautified. Surely NOTHING HAPPENS by chance. I feel that even though my mom suffered a lot, she is now blessed and what an assurance that she's in a greater place.

    I am proud to say that I own a Rosary that was bought at the Vatican and bless by Pope John Paul II. Who will become a Saint, yes in our time a real true Saint.

    It is very inspiring and edifying for a contemporary to be proclaimed saint or beatified. It shows the reality of Godliness lived in practical ways. The heroism we read about in the great accounts of saints in history are inspiring but this one is life giving.
    The aura of saint hood brings me closer to God as it becomes clear that one can be saint even in the dot com world.
    To an African,a Ugandan at that, a man who has once shaken hands with us in our time, who kissed Ugandan soil, who was there to physically see suffering in the Northern part of our country, whose life we knew well, a man who proclaimed to us "let your light shine" oh God he is in heaven! I saw him walk in the foot ball ground in nakivubo in kampala, I pray I see him again walk in heaven.
