Make John Paul a Saint Immediately!

Cries the crowd at his funeral (someday someone may read this and chalk it up to hagiography–but we have witnessed it ourselves!)

From Yahoo! News – Poor and Powerful Mourn Pope at Emotional Funeral:

“‘We can be sure that our beloved Pope is standing today at the window of the Father’s house, that he sees us and blesses us,’ Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger told hundreds of thousands of people packed into a windswept St. Peter’s Square.

‘Santo subito’ (Make him a saint immediately), the crowds chanted in Italian, holding up the Mass for more than 5 minutes in an outpouring of emotion for a giant of the 20th century who ruled his Church for more than 26 years. “
