Hi Matt, thanks for coming back.
Before a saint is canonized in the modern church two proofs of a miracle are required. These are examined by an investigative and sceptical forum, contrarians in the debate appointed to refute the evidence presented.

So I believe I am correct in context and the pronunciation I require is correct.
I agree that it is a stumbling point but I would be loath to change to accommodate the uninformed, not I hasten to add that I include you in that , but I think you can see what I mean,

All best regards


Just to add Matt, the factotum queries the proof because she knows that no miracles were performed.
Adding further Matt, if you can misread it and you are the reader I require for this, should I asterisk it at this point with a footnote or would that as I suspect merely be dumbing it down?
