It's interesting living close to the administrative center of the Order; you learn the answers the questions you never knew you had. Today provides a good example.
If you are a Catholic, you are no doubt familiar with holy cards of the saints. You probably have some in your missal or your breviary. I have a holy card of Our Lady of the Angels that's been in my wallet for almost twenty years, long story.
Now, perhaps you have had a holy card of someone who has been beatified, a holy card of blessed so-and-so.
Have you ever wondered what happens to the holy cards of blessed so-and-so if and when blessed so-and-so gets canonized and becomes saint so-and-so? Me neither. But now I know. The person who was in charge of the causes of those former blesseds, from whom the holy cards of blessed so-and-so originate, finding himself home alone on a very hot day, puts them in the fireplace.
One learns these things because inquiring minds always want to know why someone would make a fire in the fireplace in Rome in August.
Amen. May we all learn to know the Christ of the burnt men.
