As part of the Catholic Church’s new “fast track”canonization process, Pope Benedict has accidentallycanonized aSt.Andre cheese. The powdery, pale skin of the cheese wasmistaken for the mummified face of the saint, and, followingVatican tradition, it has now been placed in a reliquary forveneration by the faithful. Pilgrims wishing to pray at thecheese will find it in a large golden reliquary that is tobe installed in theChurchof St. Andre in France. “Who knows,” the pope said afterthe error was discovered, “maybe praying before the cheesewill gain favor with St. Andre. He may have very muchenjoyed cheese.”
