    This stood out for me;

    "According to Clarin, one of the country’s biggest daily newspapers, a source within the local church said that being seen as a good person is not enough to make someone a saint. Doctrinal orthodoxy, religious practice and a faithfulness to the Church are needed, and these are all things Evita arguably lacked - not to mention that she was highly critical of the ecclesiastical hierarchy of her time."

    This stands out specifically because I have been reflecting lately on the issue of the "good person" who lacks faith in or even rejects Christ, the role of specifically Christian faith in our salvation, and the need to go through Christ first. Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant posters have all remarked that works apart from faith in Christ are profitless if we do not have faith in Christ as their foundation and spring.

    Thank you, Michie.
