Protestant Brother Schultz in Heaven?


People Commmenting
TIA,

First, Benedict XVI gave the Protestant brother Roger Schultz Communion at the funeral of John Paul II (see picture).

Now, according to the news report below, the Pope says the recently deceased Protestant is in heaven.
Founder "Has Attained Eternal Joy," says Benedict XVI
CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy, AUG. 17, 2005 (Zenit) - Benedict XVI expressed his sorrow at the murder of Brother Roger Schultz, saying the founder of the ecumenical Taizé Community is "in the hands of eternal goodness." ...

"Frère Schultz is in the hands of eternal goodness, of eternal love; he has attained eternal joy," the Holy Father added. "He invites and exhorts us to be faithful laborers in the Lord's vineyard, also in sad situations, certain that the Lord accompanies us and gives us his joy."
Does this mean he jumped ahead of John Paul the Great? In fact, why do we even need the canonization process anymore? Why should poor John Paul be forced to go through the canonization process while the heretical Frere Schultz got promoted in just one casual speech?

Did Frere Schultz skip Purgatory? Does Benedict even believe in Purgatory?

But everything is okay because, as the article reports, the Pope "showed emotion" as he expressed his grief. That's all that counts in today's world - sentimentality. How right Bishop Richard Williamson is when he says that we must wake up every morning and wipe away the pernicious cobwebs of Liberalism.
