Default Inventor of Cappucino up for sainthood?

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope John Paul on Sunday beatified a 17th-century friar credited with halting a Muslim invasion of Europe and in the process discovering the frothy coffee drink cappuccino.

More than 300 years after his death, Marco d'Aviano cleared the last step before sainthood, as the pope recognized the friar's miraculous work including curing a nun who had been bedridden for 13 years.

History books also show that with a vast Ottoman Turk army beating a path to Vienna in 1683, d'Aviano was sent by the then-pope to unite the outnumbered Christian troops, spurring them to victory.

As the Turks fled, legend has it they left behind sacks of coffee which the Christians found too bitter, so they sweetened it with honey and milk.

The drink, now supped by millions around the world, was called cappuccino after the Capuchin order of monks to which d'Aviano belonged.

Under a cloudy sky in St Peter's Square on Sunday, the pope paid tribute to d'Aviano and five other Italians whom he also beatified.




Do you believe in "miracles" (one of the qualifications of being nominated for sainthood)?

I don't belive in miracles... it's all coinsidence, sometimes if you pray something will happen it does and sometimes if you pray for something to happen it won't happen. It's that simple, it has nothing to do about God. It's all about chance. If a person prays for something and it comes true they automatically belive that God is real and actually cares about them.
