“Not everyone that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that does the will of my Father, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:21-23)
A canonization of a saint is “a public and official declaration of the heroic virtue of a person and the inclusion of his or her name in the canon (roll or register) of the saints... This judgment of the Church is infallible and irreformable.” (A Catholic Dictionary)
