Dr Ed Peters on: Canonization and the emerging Benedict XVI

Of those matters we know anything about (an important qualification when discussing papal activities), Benedict XVI's letter to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints seems to me to be one of the most important things he's done to date. It is certainly shows the clearest difference between him and John Paul II to emerge so far. Benedict XVI could have communicated his concerns about the beatification and canonization process in a simple telephone call; instead he wrote a short treatise on the topic. The world was meant to take notice...
A good analysis and one which seems to be right on target...There are not a few who think in a similar manner as Dr. Peters has expressed. Certainly, there will be more on this as time progresses.
