Hi, silly question really
I was wondering if there have been politicians canonized by the Church. Here in my country there’s always the thought of almost all politicians going to hell because they’re corrupt, selfish, etc. This outlook troubles me, because I myself am majoring in Political Science in a university and looking to become a lawyer one day. Can’t get any more secular than that :o
Of course, there could be exceptions. I personally consider Cory Aquino to be a saint in her own right. So I’m looking for people who have worked in secular environments (more specifically the public/judicial life) and who have been virtuous and devout enough to have been canonized by the Church. I would consider martyrs, but I’m looking more for confessors of the faith, so that I can strive to live my considerably secular vocation as God wants me to.
Looking forward to your replies. Thank you.
Ave Maria! Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam!
