  Saint - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This investigation examines and confirms (or disproves) any number of visions or miracles attributed to candidate, or of the general holiness or specific good deeds that he or she may have done while alive.
A Saint may be designated as a Patron saint of particular causes or professions, or invoked against specific illnesses or disasters.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Beatification and Canonization
At the time fixed by the Congregation of Rites an ordinary meeting (congregatio) is held in which this appointment is debated by the cardinals of the aforesaid congregation and its officials, but without the vote or participation of the consultors, though this privilege is always granted them by rescript.
When the miracles have been proved, another meeting of the Congregation of Rites is held in which it is debated once, and only once, whether or not, given the approbation of the virtues and miracles, it is safe to proceed with the solemnities of beatification.
The other meetings of the congregation (ordinary, rotal, and "upon virtues and miracles") may be as few as sixteen in the course of the year.

 Canonization   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
When sufficient information has been gathered, the subject of the investigation is called a "Servant of God", and the process is transferred to the Roman Curia—the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints—where it is assigned a postulator, whose task is to gather all information about the life of the Servant of God.
When enough information has been gathered, the congregation will recommend to the pope that he make a proclamation of the Servant of God's heroic virtue, which entitles him or her to receive the title "Venerable".
The declaration of sainthood is considered to be infallible, while declarations of venerability and beatitude are not.

 Howstuffworks "How does someone become a saint?"
A panel of theologians and the cardinals of the Congregation for Cause of Saints evaluate the candidate's life.
If the panel approves, the pope proclaims that the candidate is venerable, which means that the person is a role model of Catholic virtues.
Martyrs, those who died for their religious cause, can be beatified without evidence of a miracle.

 Emmet Cole's "Joyous Anarchy" 1/2004
In the case of the Gnostics for example, their fixation on the evil aspects of existence led them to believe that everything created, including themselves, was necessarily shot through with evil forces.
This negative perspective caused them to play everything in a minor key and the mood set by that key made it impossible for them to find anything worldly worth celebrating.
In any case, as Father Saunders implied, Sainthood is more or less an idealizing distraction from the virtuous life – those who seek it, for themselves or for others, are missing the point.

He is a babe who yet has many wonderful things to learn, but all of what has been said is in the seed of that faith and it shall forever flourish and blossom to the praise of the glory of God's grace.
And that faith causes him to rise out of the dust with a determination to follow Christ despite any and every opposition of the world against Christ; to walk pleasingly before the Lord, striving, pursuing after his new desire to be more and more like Christ.
Finally, to please God is to be as Christ, who summed up His motive in all He did on earth with these words, "Father...I have glorified thee on the earth.
