EXTRA: Vatican Promotes Mortal to Sainthood!

Much as in days of yore, the battle between good and evil continues.

Today Brother Andre of Montreal, born Alfred Bessette has been canonized a saint by the Roman Catholic Church.

“In this solemn act, the Roman Catholic Church is honouring a Canadian who achieved greatness through humility, determination and service to others.” -Stephen Harper, via National Post

Andre joins ten other Canadians who currently enjoy sainthood. While The Bruce would certainly enjoy taking this opportunity to further mock the Catholic Church, he will refrain.

The above qualities are indeed admirable and sadly lacking in todays culture.  If the Pope see fit to spiritually elevate such as these, The Bruce applauds the gesture, however quaint.
