Oh wow! Sounds like a good thing. Do you think you can choose an aspect of which to be the patron saint ? 🤣😂🤣😂

Gosh - I wish I could buy sainthood - I could do with it - my qualifications for sainthood are in rapid decline!

megan123 Mon 28-Jan-19 12:23:26

I don't think I would qualify even in a minor role!

PECS Mon 28-Jan-19 12:27:59

Oh I see..I thought purchasing trumped any bad behavour ..I won't be eligible either grin

Is there an exam ?does one have to be alive to be beatified - these questions and many others need answers grin

Death would be a pre requisite but I expect you put your order in well in advance.

I don't think it matters.

Death is definitely a pre-requisite and you have to have performed a miracle as well! Oh, and you have to have led a saintly life too.

That rules most of us out, I believe!

Oh dear I do not fit any of the criteria for sainthood!!!

I wonder if the halo comes in a variety of colours?

Sadly, I am not on the list, I was scratched off long ago, although I do a good "Day6 to the rescue. How would you manage without me" martyr act once in a while. grin I have been told my reward will be in Heaven. <cough>

No ... I have beaten you all to it! I AM a Saint.
Just finished making delicious chicken soup for very poorly DH who is in bed.
When I took it up on a tray DH exclaimed "You are a saint!"

Day6 My mum used to say I'd get my reward in Heaven when I was looking after her.

Hopefully it'll still be waiting for me if I end up in the other place...!

No risk for beatifying for me either but I could do with beautifying. How much? Or perhaps this would cancel the other sad
