(Via the community listserv). Sainthood push for founder of Paulists. Not a bad overview ... though I should gently add that it's not just up to the Pope and the Vatican to make Fr. Hecker a saint, or, more accurately, for him to be declared a saint by the Church. Fr. Hecker himself has to do his stuff from heaven, and intercede in a miraculous way. Twice, actually. And his petition has to be heard.
Ultimately, of course, it's God, who makes saints. We hope and pray that is the case with Fr. Hecker. And, whether in the canon of saints or not, with each one of us as well.
