I’ve saved more than a dozen people’s lives in my time, each being a miracle, by some definitions. If I believed in your canons, I would be a candidate. But, I do not live under the laws of your beliefs.
And, not only was Stanley a much better person than I, he was an avid church goer. Although he didn’t have a ‘following’, which I didn’t know was a pre-requisite of getting into Heaven, he was a pious man!
It seems to me that the confirmation of being in Heaven would preclude any question of ‘following’.
By Deutoronomy, and by your own Pauline Doctrine, it would only take two, or three, witnesses for verification. So, verification of Stanley being in Heaven would be accomplished if more than three people prayed to Stanley for intercession, and those prayers were answered.
Would that not be verification that he is in Heaven, and, therefore, a candidate for Saint? Would that not preclude the ‘following’ clause?
BTW, the name is Constatine, Niles.
