Remnant: Inflation & Canonization

[ I was reliably informed in the early 90s that the going “price” was over $250K for a typical canonization, insofar as staff travel expenses, salaries, procuring expert professional opinions, etc. were entailed. / gpmtrad ]

Vatican’s bill for sainthood €750,000?

Written by 

The Times is reporting the following today: “Securing sainthood is a commercial process that can cost up to €750,000 in fees paid to a Vatican department that refuses to account for its spending.

“That is one of the revelations contained in Merchants in the Temple, a  new book to be published tomorrow lifting the lid on financial skullduggery  and corruption in the Vatican.”

REMNANT COMMENT: Well, what of it!  The folks at the Vatican have to eat, too. Besides, I’m sure this in no way detracts from the airtight process by which the post-conciliar Vatican secures halos for the holy. It’s just that everything is so expensive these days…including halos. Nothing to see here.

St. Pope John XXIII, Pray for us!
