If he wasn’t a saint when he died, he isn’t becoming one now...

Yep. Scripture says I'm already a saint...and that anything other than that has its roots in Babylon...

Nobody says a person "becomes" a saint upon canonization. Saints are the family, he community, the people of God, both here and hereafter. In this world, and in the next one.

Canonization just means a formal recognition of that fact, always in consideration of a life which was not sinless, but marked by heroic virtue, and sometimes, martyrdom.

There are a whole heck of a lot more holy people in heaven, than there are canonized saints. I think everybody knows that.
