Jeffrey raises a point that's a real puzzler:
"I'm amazed a cause for canonization hasn't been opened yet."
I agree. No cause at all? Do. Not. Get. It.
Many popes have had to confront the world. With Rerum Novarum, Leo XIII shaped it.
Add to this giving biblical scholarship a shot in the arm, opening doors to Eastern Christians and reviving Aquinas....
My bafflement continues.
