The perfectly preserved monk, Vissarion Korkoliakos, is back in the news again. After weeks of constant visitors to the small church in Fthiotida, the Church of Greece has stated again that they are not prepared to exalt the monk to sainthood, stating that any decision would be left up to God.
The Church has been quite effusive with claims that the undecomposed body is a "sign from above" and "a message for our people and our age", yet they don't think God has made the decision for him to become a saint? What are they looking for, the body to sit up straight and start talking?
It makes no damn sense. But then again, the whole darn thing is one stop short of Crazytown.
