Most men and women who have been canonized as saints in recent centuries have gone through an extensive juridical process. That process involves an examination of the man or woman's life to determine if he or she lived a life of heroic virtue and, of course, the Church finding that through the intercession of the candidate for canonization that miracles have occurred. (You can learn the details of the beatification and canonization process in the free email course on the saints.) The process has been modified over the past several centuries, but these essential parts have always been in place.
