When I met the Pope last spring, I noticed something strange about the way he looked
at me. His eyes, almost tearful, were full of wonder. Now I understand why.
I found out this morning that the Pope has just declared me the first living Saint in history.
As you know, becoming a Saint requires two miracles. He cited the miracle of me being elected with so little experience as the first one.
Apparently, my receiving the Nobel Peace Prize last week qualified as the second miracle.
Again, I feel honored and humbled. Holy moly, what a year I'm having!
