    Most probably, Paul VI was a saint.
    In any case “Humanae Vitae” made him an criticized, impopular martyr at the hands of the Council “renovators” many of them, prominent members of Francis Jesuit Order.
    Pope, John Paul II, not much appreciated by those, had already two miracles. John XXIII, had only one but was added quickly enough.The effort to have them together looks a bit more image-building than sainthood recognition.

    I wonder if anyone in Rome has read Fr. Luigis book on Paul VI.
    “Paul VI, beatified?”
    If they have they are more than likely just ignoring it.
