The last English saints to be canonised were the so-called Forty Martyrs of England and Wales, who were executed for treason and related offences between 1535 and 1679. Although the the seventeeth-century martyrs were recognised by Pope Paul VI only in 1970, if Chesterton’s clause is successful he would be the first English saint to have lived for more than 300 years.The process of canonisation must begin at least five years after a person’s death, except for in exceptional circumstances decided by the Pope, such as the canonisation of Mother Theresa. It usually takes at least fifty years, and the Vatican must find evidence that at least two miracles have been performed.Chesterton’s grave is in Beaconsfied, Buckinghamshire, and has become a landmark of local interest, although Canon Udris said that residents “wouldn’t have conceived of him in any sense as a candidate for a sainthood”, and that much of the pressure for his canonisation had come from abroad. Members of the Argentinian Chesterton society and supporters in the United States and Canada were the first to petition the Bishop of Northampton to begin the canonisation process in 2013. After the report is published, the Bishop will decide whether to open a ‘cause’ with the Vatican, which begins the formal investigation into the extent of Chesterton’s holiness and the sanctity of his life. Pope Francis may look favourably on the application, having reportedly been a member of the G.K. Chesterton Society in his home country of Argentina.At a later stage of the canonisation process, the Vatican will look for evidence that he has performed posthumous miracles by answering prayers. The report’s findings show that infertile couples, in particular, are said to have singled out Chesterton, himself childless, to ask for miracle conceptions, said Canon John Udris, who compiled the report.“Very interestingly, I have noticed people saying that they are praying for him,” he said.“Because they didn’t have any children, Frances and Gilbert [Chesterton], so they are finding him as a bit of a go-to person, if for example a couple is infertile and looking to have a child.” “[Miracles] will be, if the cause is opened, down the line, what will people be looking for. And of course, people have already been feeding back,” Canon Udris said.Chesterton was an eminent writer, and produced hundreds of stories, books, essays and plays.His works of Christian apologetics are highly regarded, and he was eventually knighted by Pope Pius XI before his death in 1936.Opponents of G.K. Chesterton’s canonisation point to alleged anti-Semitic views he expressed in his lifetime, including the presentation of Jews as greedy or cowardly in his literary works. Later in his life, Chesterton said that Jews should have to wear distinctive dress so that they could be identified, and opposed the defendant Alfred Dreyfus in a trial widely perceived to be an anti-Semitic miscarriage of justice.Canon Udris told The Daily Telegraph that while presenting the views of “people who have hesitations, reservations, and actually who are dead set against the cause” is crucial to his report, his personal view is that “wasn’t a racist bone in his body”. “I won’t be making any recommendations, although he [Bishop Doyle] knows and I’ve made no bones about my personal hopes that the cause will be opened,” he said. A renowned author may become England’s first saint for 300 years after Catholic couples claimed he answered their prayers for “miracle” children.G.K Chesterton is best known for his short stories featuring the character Father Brown, a crime solving priest loosely based on the man who was involved in his conversion to Catholicism in 1922.But now he could become England’s first Roman Catholic saint since the 17th century, after an official report examining the strength of his case is published next month.The Daily Telegraph understands that the document, commissioned by the Bishop of Northampton, will show that Catholics are praying to Chesterton and asking for intercession – his intervention in their lives.It will also dispute claims that Chesterton held anti-Semitic views and used Jewish character tropes in his work. Many oppose Chesterton’s canonisation, pointing to anti-Semitic views he expressed in his lifetime.Credit:Getty Creative Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

RYE SAVES GROUND AND POWERS TO 2 ¼ LENGTH WIN IN $200,000 UNUSUAL HEAT TURF CLASSIC UNDER DESORMEAUX
RYE SAVES GROUND AND POWERS TO 2 ¼ LENGTH WIN IN $200,000 UNUSUAL HEAT TURF CLASSIC UNDER DESORMEAUX; OWNED & TRAINED BY MOREY, HE DEFENDS HIS TITLE BY GETTING 1 1/8 MILES ON TURF IN 1:47.56PRESENTED BY CITY NATIONAL BANK, CLASSIC IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED RUNNERS ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 26, 2019)–In his second start off a lengthy layoff, owner/trainer William Morey’s Rye saved every inch of ground under Kent Desormeax as he successfully defended his title in Saturday’s $200,000 Unusual Heat Turf Classic. A 6-year-old full horse by English Channel, out of the Unusual Heat mare Phi Beta Heat, Rye got a mile and one eighth on turf in 1:47.56.One of four Saturday stakes restricted to horses bred or sired in California, the Unusual Heat Turf Classic is part of the lucrative Golden State Series, which is sponsored by the CTBA.Breaking from post position three in a field of nine older horses, Rye had three horses beat around the Club House turn and appeared comfortable as he maintained a stalking position into the far turn under a long hold from Desormeaux.A quarter mile out, it appeared Rye would go for an opening three off the fence, just to the outside of Accountability and Joe Talamo, but Desormeaux instead dove to the rail and with favored Ashleyluvssugar hung wide, prevailed easily.Idle since May 20 prior to running fourth, beaten five lengths in six furlong tune-up on synthetic Tapeta at Golden Gate Fields Jan. 10, Rye was off at 5-1 and paid $13.40, $6.40 and $5.00.Bred in California by H & E Ranch, Rye, who notched his third career stakes win, improved his overall mark to 21-9-0-5 and with the winner’s check of $120,000, increased his earnings to $446,118.Ashleyluvssugar, who bobbled a bit at the break, was nonetheless mid-pack while well within himself around the first turn and onto the backstretch, all the while saving ground under Tyler Baze. Fifth at the quarter pole, he wheeled six-wide turning for home and was clearly second best on the day, finishing 1 ¾ lengths in front of Accountability.Off as the 5-2 favorite, Ashleyluvssugar paid $4.60 and $3.80.Accountability, off at 17-1 with Talamo, paid $8.00 to show while finishing three quarters of a length in front of pacesetter King Abner.Note: The Turf Classic was win number 5,999 for Desormeaux, a longtime time member of racing’s Hall of Fame.Fractions on the race were 24.01, 47.73, 1:11.74 and 1:36.07.

“The sun’ll come out tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be sun! Just thinkin’ about tomorrow clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow, ’til there’s none! When I’m stuck a day that’s gray and lonely. I just stick out my chin and grin and say, Oh! The sun’ll come out tomorrow. So ya gotta hang on til tomorrow come what may. Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow! You’re always a day away!” (“Tomorrow” from the musical “Annie”) It is a drab and dreary Monday morning. I hope the sun comes out today.Philadelphia is the land of cream cheese and the ultimate “cheesesteaks.” I say the word “steaks” sort of tongue-in-cheekish because every steak joint in Philly will swear on their grandmothers’ tombstone that they are the best. See in Philly even when they are not the best they will swear by all that is Holy that they are. So when they finally achieve excellence in anything they will crow, crow and crow until their vocal chords explode.They have a reason to brag about their baseball team. They do not only have young guns, they have a few young cannons. The Phillies don’t have many weaknesses. They are ba….d boys on offense, defense, special teams, oops, wrong sport.The Phillies do not have to worry about hearing the skeletons of the decisions of past general managers rattling in their closet. Their management team has been on a two decade construction campaign in regards to their franchise.Meanwhile, Dave Littlefield, the past Pittsburgh Pirates general manager from their sister city from the west, literally ended up being viewed as the real Santa Claus in July.Back in Aug. of 2006 in article titled: “Admiral of the Fleet,” I sat down with Kevin McClatchy the ex-bmoc, (big man on campus) for the Pirates prior to his relinquishing the point man role for the Bucs.When I pressed him about the reign and future of then GM/VP “Dave the Terrible” who lasted until Sept. 2007, McClatchy had this to say: “The bottom line is winning and we haven’t done that yet so there is a lot of pressure. There’s a lot of pressure on me. There’s a lot of pressure on Dave. We need to have a stronger second half. I’ve been very clear this year. The first half was unacceptable. We lost 25 one run games, that means you’re in a lot of games but the truth is you still lost the games.We can’t be content with one run losses or that’s where we will continue to be. We made some trades and moved some folks out of here. You have to perform. We all understand the pressure is on us but that’s the nature of this business.”This is 2012, four years eight months since the tenure of Littlefield and the Pirates are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in regards to rebuilding from their lowest minor league affiliate to the boys who daily patrol the “diamond” over at PNC Park.There must be pressure and lots of it placed upon the shoulders of the Pirates GM Neil Huntingdon as well as the Buc’s skipper Clint Hurdle in regards to the Pirates righting the ship and winning now!The season, reason and rhyme for excuses, woulda, shoulda, coulda is long past. Almost as if it were appearing on cue, the sun has come up and is blazing across the horizon. You can bet your bottom dollar that through all of the misery and pain of losing the sun will one day again shine brightly on the Pittsburgh Pirates.Just remember this; the same Steelers that we expect to annually win or contend for an NFL championship is the same team we expected to lose almost every game just 45 years ago. No one expected the sun to even rise, forget about shining on a hapless directionless franchise that seemed bent on inventing new ways to lose on a game by game basis but ya know what the same team that the world laughed at; the world now laughs with as the men of steel daily put a fresh coat of polish on six NFL Championship trophies.The day is coming. I have been accused of being, rabid, crazed and delusional in regards to my annual so-called rose colored predictions regarding the soon to be successful Pittsburgh Pirates. When I was in my early twenties I attended a church service featuring a prominent “prophet” and faith healer. After the service concluded, my father who was a devout Christian and a man of God for his entire life asked me a question. “Peanut, what did you think of the service?” I replied that “I thought it was great but one thing puzzled me. The “prophet” promised every sick person there that they were healed. How could he promise that? I asked.” Dad said, “If he bats one percent everyone wins.” That leads me to say; Pittsburgh has heard all of the lofty promises before but if the Pirates top .500 or get a wild card playoff slot in 2012 we all win.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412-583-6741.)
