Saint Francis!

(Francis already has a halo in this photo.)
Francis has named more saints in his short reign than John Paul II did during his entire pontificate.  John Paul II named a little over 460 new saints during his reign but Francis has named 800 plus some already!  Don't worry we here at Call Me Jorge... will give Benedict XVI an assist on most of these new saints as he started the process for them.  We wonder if there is some sort of saint machine in the basement of the Vatican?

Dear readers, we believe Francis should be a 'saint' and hope you will get the ball rolling by writing letters to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.  Proof of his 'miracles' follow.

(Martha Rabino, Mother Superior of the Our Lady of Mercy college attests to miracle.)
Mother Superior Martha Rabino said that Jorge was a “little devil” as a young boy but after being elected Pope his first ‘miracle’ happened.
Moving slowly along school hallways due to arthritis in her feet, which forces her to walk around in slippers, Rabino remembered the joy of learning that Bergoglio had become pope.
"I jumped from my seat. I think that was his first miracle as Holy Father," she quipped…
…"Now we have to pray for him more than ever," she said. "He is a gift to the church, a breath of fresh air, like opening the windows."
John XXIII who convened the Second Vatican Council stated he did this in order to "open the windows of the Vatican and let in the fresh air."  The Mother Superior is saying this needs to be done again. Where are the vocations and the renewal of faith which were to result from the Second Vatican Council?  Truth is eternal and unchanging but revolution is the lie of the devil and is always temporary or changing.  But we are digressing, on to Francis' second 'miracle'.




Joaquin Navarro-Valls, the press secretary of John Paul II, says that the humor of John Paul II was a miracle!  The bar must be set real low over at the Congregation for the Causes of Saints these days.  To quote our blog's namesake, "who are we to judge?"  We definitely know we are not the devil's advocate!  Two of Francis' jokes showing his 'miraculous' humor:

So there you have dear readers not one, but two miracles of Francis.  Get busy!  Contact information for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints is below.  If you don't send them a letter or fax them, then at the very least give the Congregation a telephone call!
