Due to a series of alleged financial abuses in the saint-making business, the Vatican has imposed new financial rules in the multi-million euro canonisation ‘racket’. Saint-making doesn’t come cheap! Intimate details of a proposed saint’s life and career are painstakingly assembled, and at a cost of 500,000 euros (£500,000) per head. Naturally, with any time-consuming and costly process which is cloaked in mystery, there will always be room for the misappropriation of funds! Perhaps 3 miracles should be cut to 2 miracles? Anyone for beatification lite?
