Vatican City - On Sunday, Mother Teresa, revered for her work with the poor in India, was proclaimed a saint by Pope Francis in a ceremony at the Vatican. Tens of thousands of pilgrims attended the canonization in St Peter's Square.
Francis said: "St Teresa had defended the unborn, sick and abandoned, and had shamed world leaders for the "crimes of poverty they themselves created".
In India, a special Mass was celebrated at the Missionaries of Charity, the order she founded in Kolkata (Calcutta).
Following the proclamation and not be outdone or overshadow, the Clinton Campaign leaked the fact that Hillary Clinton was on the Vatican's short list for the next beatification.
A Vatican spokesperson said: "Although Mrs. Clinton isn't dead yet, we believe she is more than worthy by her great works, the miracles she has performed, and we need to get a head start on the process."
With Hillary already ahead in the presidential polls, her presidency seems almost assured. As previously reported Friday, 12 August 2016 on this website, a new poll even showed Hillary beating Jesus when going head to head.
Robby Mook, Clinton's campaign manager, commented on the Vatican's decision to move forward: "Soon Hillary will be breaking the "glass ceiling" by becoming the first U.S. woman president.
"Next, only the sky is the limit!"
There has been some concern that Hillary might be losing some of the Jewish voters when the news gets out, but Sainthood is clearly next on her agenda. Her soon to be predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize shortly after he took office. Hillary plans to "trump" that with canonization.
Although there were some dissenters concerning Obama's award, like Australia's former Foreign Minister Alexander Downer who said that the selection was "a political decision of gross stupidity", laying the blame on the selection committee for a "hideous display of cynical politics." Many Clinton insiders believe that sainthood is the next logical step to elevating Hillary Clinton to the place she rightfully deserves.
To reinforce the Vatican's decision and solidify the claims that Mother Teresa and Hillary are equally deserving of sainthood, the Clinton campaign released the following comparison using Hillary's own words.
