Perhaps the royal wedding inspired this piece on saints among the 1%. I don’t begrudge the aristocracy their occasional saint.
I observe that saints can be one of two things: mentor or celebrity. The greatest saints are something of both. John Paul II might be a mentor to clergy, but to most Catholics, he was a celebrity–in the best sense of that term. Mary of Nazareth, certainly both. Women and even men have followed her as a Biblical celebrity, but also on a personal level.
Aleteia gives four examples of royal couples. I’d say we need at least 396 ordinary married couples who have lived saintly lives under various conditions: as refugees, adoptive parents, founders (not necessarily religious orders), community builders, activists, artists, etc.. You know: ordinary people who can be models of accessible behavior. And saintly royalty can inspire the aristocracy of the new world.
