Default Should Oskar Schindler be a Saint?

I finally saw Schindler's list and it blew me away. Schindler was a Roman Catholic who saved the lives of 1,100 Jewish men, women and children during WWII. There are steps to becoming a Saint but this man's deeds should be enough to start the process. What do y'all think?

I want to add something. It is often said that God works in mysterious ways. Well Schindler was a heavy drinker, heavy smoker, womanizer, war profiteer and a member of the Nazi party. Well only someone like him had the connections to save all these people. God reached down and touched this man in order to use him for God's purpose. St. Paul was not a great man before his conversion, but he became a Saint.

One can be a saint without being canonized. That's my goal and I am sure it may have Schindler's as well.

Excellent movie.

"Official saint". Maybe

"Unofficial?" Definitely.

Totally - He should be Canonized. I, as a Catholic, will ask for his intercession. Peace!

My opinion is that he already is a Saint, we just don't know it yet.

Default Re: Should Oskar Schindler be a Saint?

This thread has been dormant for a considerable period. With rare exceptions, reviving threads after a protracted period of inactivity is discouraged because:

the issues that spurred them are often no longer "hot" or current topics, explaining why thread activity ceased originally.
posters originally involved in the discussion are sometimes no longer active on the forum and, therefore, unavailable to reply to comments added to the thread.


Our experience suggests that, when a topic merits revival, it is best accomplished by initiating a new thread that draws on recent events and can be posted to contemporaneously. This eliminates the baggage of folks being frustrated by asking and not receiving responses to issues raised in early posts (because the new poster didn't notice that the post he was responding to was made a long time ago).

Posters are very welcome to open a new thread on the subject or any other topic, as well as to actively participate in the myriad active threads in the fora.

Thank you to all those who have participated in this discussion. This thread is now closed.
