It’s just that some of us are saintlier than others, like Popes who are making sure that their successors will do likewise by them until the end of time. For every Dorothy Day, Elizabeth Seton and Joan of Arc, there is a Vatican luminary slated to become a Good Guy post-mortem,complete with halo and saccharinic expression. Sort of like raising one’s corporate predecessor to the rank of honorary Chairman of the Board or making sure that one’s old commanding officer gets his turn at being Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
