A few questions I have:
1 I understand the autocephalous churches in the Orthodox communion declares their own saints. Are these saints automatically transferred to the other Churches? Are there saints canonised by one Church and rejected by another? How would the Orthodox Churches outside of the Russian Orthodox Church then see Nicholas II, who seems to be canonised largely on political grounds.
2 Why did the Orthodox Church canonise Constantine when he was baptised by an Arian? Is it true that Byzantine Catholics also revere him as a saint?
3 I remember some time back (1994 or 1995?) somebody in the Anglican Church wanted to expand the list of saints. What became of it? The list included non-controversial ones like Francis of Assisi and controversial (to my eyes at least) ones like Ignatius of Loyola - how do you justify accepting someone as a saint when he explicitly rejected being in communion with you?[/LIST]
