@mccallansteve The pope decides who is, or is not, to be Canonized. The Canonization process is just a recommendation.

There are some who don't consider Canonization to be an infallible act (no disagreement about Beatification), but it is a declaration that the person enjoys the Beatific Vision. The proclamation of heroic virtue comes from the Congregation of Saints, thus is not considered …More
