Is the Pope about to bestow John Lennon a sainthood!?

A short reflection on the last day of the Church Year Sunday, 23 November 2008 Reuters report that the Vatican propaganda paper, Osservatore Romano, has stated that the Vatican (aka the Pope) has forgiven John Lennon his 1966 declaration that “the Beatles now are more famous than Jesus Christ”. I wonder what John Lennon would have said about this resurrection from the high prelate in Rome! I suspect at least he would not have liked the Vatican’s motivation: "The remark by John Lennon, which triggered deep indignation ..., after many years sounds only like a 'boast' by a young working-class Englishman faced with unexpected success”. Or is it a ploy by the Vatican when celebrating the last Sunday of the Church Year, the End of the World? ZenMaster
