How does a person become a saint

How Does a Person become a Saint?

  • The Church decides to investigate the life of a candidate for sainthood to see whether they have lived a holy life.

  • They look at their writings to see whether these are consistent with Catholic doctrine.

  • The Church reads about their accomplishments and listens to evidence that they have lived a life of sacrifice and service to God.

Venerable blessed then saint

Venerable, Blessed, then Saint

  • Once a person has been judged to have lived a life of “heroic virtue,” that person is declared “Venerable”

  • If a miracle is attributed to the intercession of the candidate, that person may be declared Blessed.

  • Usually it is only after a second miracle that a person is considered for sainthood.

  • Two Miracles have been approved by the Vatican’s

    Congregation

    for the Cause of Saints

    The role of the Congregation is to investigate potential cases for sainthood and to decide whether the case may be referred to the Pope.

Prayer to pope john paul 11

Prayer to Pope John Paul 11

O Blessed Trinity, we thank You for having

graced the Church with Blessed John Paul

II and for allowing the tenderness of Your

Fatherly care, the glory of the Cross of

Christ, and the splendor of the Spirit of love,

to shine through him. Trusting fully in

Your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession

of Mary, he has given us a living

image of Jesus the Good Shepherd, and has

shown us that holiness is the necessary

measure of ordinary Christian life and is

the way of achieving eternal communion

with You. Grant us, by his intercession, and

according to Your will, the graces we implore,

knowing that he is numbered

among Your saints. Amen.
