Sunday, October 03, 2004 : Pope Beatifies Emperor, Nun, Three Others --
This story notes that the pope beatified both Sister Anna Katharina Emmerick and Emperor Charles I.

What I want to know is why a Brazilian nun was praying for the intercession of the last Hapsburg ruler of Austro-Hungary.

Given John Paul II's desire to name topical saints, I suspect that this beatification is partly a message to world leaders who fail to minimize the use of warfare 8cough*Bush*cough*.
