What if God disapproves of Canonization? Miraculous disasters?

Asked by whitenoise (13290 points ) April 24th, 2014

Just heard that in Italy a 100 foot statue of Christ collapsed, which was built in honor of one of the popes that will be canonized, coming Sunday. In its collapse, it killed a 21 year old student.

Now all kinds of positive miracles are used as a justification for canonization. They are to be seen as signs of God. So how about signs that God doesn’t agree… Are these also taken into consideration? Should they?

BTW… Please don’t derail this into a religion is nonsense / always attacked thread. I am just wondering if it would be conceivable that God could give negative signals besides the positive as well, in the modern world view we have of Him.
