Too many saints!

Just kidding. You can never have too many saints. But you can have too many people clogging up the canonization process.

Another problem, he added, has been the willingness of some dioceses to open causes without "a serious and rigorous verification of the fame of sanctity or martyrdom." He stressed that a cause should not begin unless the candidate is already "held to be a saint or martyr by a considerable number of faithful."

Which isn't good for anyone involved.
