on my thought that canonization was protected by infallibility.
. . .or maybe not. Also canonization is not an “ex
cathedra” pronouncement regarding faith and morals, which are the only instances
in which the pope’s statements are infallible.
And I concur with him after rereading the definition for ex cathedra
statements. I ponder then can the pope declare someone to the universal church
as someone to be emulated who might not have existed or is in hell?
