Julian of Norwich[edit]

Does Julian of Norwich belong on this list? She is undoubtedly an influential and holy writer, but she has never been canonised by the Catholic Church. 87.115.27.45 (talk) 20:34, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

First paragraph[edit]

I am a bit confused by that "Anyone in heaven is a saint, so..." at the end of the first paragraph. What does this mean? Why end a sentence with ...?

Years listed[edit]

What does the listed year represent? The year of the saint's birth? The year of the saint's death? The year of the saint's canonization? The article should make this clear. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 22:35, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Agreed. This list is very unclear. A quick perusal of the early edit history shows it started off as a table, then was proposed for deletion as a duplicate, then was a redirect for some time to List of Saints, then inexplicably got re-started as a weird table and now this very odd list... Needs someone with more time to figure out if this is even worth keeping. Sweet kate (talk) 18:34, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

There are several years omitted and sometimes whole centuries. St John of the Cross was canonised in 1726 (ref Wikipeia article) but there are no listings here between 1645 and 1819! Also, Theresa of Avila was canonised in 1622 but there are no listings between 1426 and 1630. This article is begging for a radical and comprehensive review! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pangapilot (talkcontribs) 22:06, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

New saints[edit]

There is something wrong with this list, as it is full of people who have been proposed for sainthood at the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, while it does not include actual saints (who are present at the list of canonizations). Is a clean-up possible?--The Theosophist (talk) 20:49, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

2014 section; Today I updated wikilink for Blessed Pope Paul VI as his bio. says he is not yet canonized. JoeHebda (talk) 00:05, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
