The funeral of Benedict XVI has been accompanied by cries of "santo subito" to demand his promotion to the altars.
It is something that is not going to happen, in the opinion of Juan G. Bedoya, an expert in religious affairs for EL PAÍS.
In the video that heads this news, Bedoya explains the reasons why Francisco will not start the process to sanctify the one who was his friend.
The cry of the faithful is not limited to a wish.
It is also a critique of the current papacy, for what it means and for the claims it has to change dynamics in the Catholic Church.
Along with the meaning that the sanctification of a pope would have, there are also the formal requirements that this process has.
Is it possible to convert a pontiff into a saint without proving that he has performed miracles? Has the process changed in recent years? Is there the figure of the devil's advocate to challenge the proposal for sanctification?
In the video analysis, Juan G. Bedoya explains how this entire process has been trivialized and the importance of money in the sanctification processes in the Catholic Church.
