The three-and-a-half-pearl Saint Hotel Key West emits a sexy vibe with its "play naughty, sleep saintly" slogan. Situated next to the buzzing nightlife on Duval Street and within easy walking distance of top sights, the hotel's location is one of its key features. Also a standout are the pretty pool, eclectic decor, well-reviewed fare at the bar, and in-room massage offerings. The 36 rooms have stylish decor, modern amenities, and comfy beds, but many are tiny, dark, and have see-through showers. or enjoy a getaway with a significant other will be hard-pressed to find a better fit. It's worth comparing rates with the nearby Almond Tree Inn, which has brighter rooms and offers a free breakfast.
Following $22-million renovations, the famous Southern Cross hotel -- one of the oldest on the island -- was re-opened as the Saint Hotel Key West, a member of Marriott's boutique line of Autograph Collection properties. While the exterior looks like a simple bungalow, inside, the decor is eclectic, striking, and swish. The design plays with proportion, shape, and style, mixing trendy and classic elements such as oversized tufted seating, huge candelabras, and wood paneling. In keeping with the hotel's theme of "play naughty, sleep saintly," anything goes here.
The hotel's 36 rooms have an undeniably sexy vibe, decorated with an eclectic mix of wood paneling, damask-patterned carpet, white-tufted headboards, and additional blue and white accents. They certainly play into the property's "play naughty, sleep saintly" tagline, as some rooms have peek-a-boo showers in the bedrooms with or without curtains for privacy. The Petit Rooms have the latter and are tiny, measuring just 150 square feet and looking much like a ship's cabin; they also have just one window. Across the board, the lighting amplifies the romantic mood with generally low-wattage and blue LED lights, however, it can be too dark for some. Lower-category rooms have toilets and sinks separate from the showers, in a space with cool basket-weave tiling. Hairdryers and high-end toiletries are provided. Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, closets with in-room safes, bathrobes, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. Upgrading to a suite will add sitting areas, furnished terraces, or bathtubs.
Database credentials -- When the SAINT manager runs for the first time, it creates a database and a database user with the username and password which you provide. In order for the SAINT manager to be able to perform needed functions, it must be able to access the database using these credentials. Therefore, the credentials are stored in the configuration files for both the saint_manager daemon (manager.ini) and the web application (main.php). If you want to encrypt the database password in these files, run the following command on the manager host after the database is initialized: cd/usr/share/saint; sudo scripts/encrypt_db_pass.py. This command will encrypt the password in both configuration files using AES-256 encryption. It may result in a slightly slower experience when using the web application.
Paste the entire SAINT key content (including the SAINTexpress transmission information at the bottom) from the mySAINT portal page into text area of the License Key page in the application.Note: For command line users, alternatively, you can also place the content into a file in your saint directory and name it saint.key.
The first time the tracker service starts, it will generate the agent setup program containing its own public key and connect-back address. The program will be located in/usr/share/saint/eSaint/saint_manager/bin/tracker_setup.exe Copy and run this program on all targets which are to be tracked. (The tracker agent is currently available for Windows only.)
To run the tracker service standalone, copy /usr/share/saint/eSaint/saint_manager/src/services/tracker.py and /usr/share/saint/eSaint/saint_manager/bin/tracker_setup_win32 to the desired location. It may be outside the SAINT installation directory, or on an entirely separate machine.
All Christians are called to be saints. Saints are persons in heaven (officially canonized or not), who lived heroically virtuous lives, offered their life for others, or were martyred for the faith, and who are worthy of imitation.
In official Church procedures there are three steps to sainthood: a candidate becomes "Venerable," then "Blessed" and then "Saint." Venerable is the title given to a deceased person recognized formally by the pope as having lived a heroically virtuous life or offered their life. To be beatified and recognized as a Blessed, one miracle acquired through the candidate's intercession is required in addition to recognition of heroic virtue or offering of life. Canonization requires a second miracle after beatification. The pope may waive these requirements. A miracle is not required prior to a martyr's beatification, but one is required before canonization.
Beatification -- the second stage in the process of proclaiming a person a saint; occurs after a diocese or eparchy and the Congregation for the Causes of Saints has conducted a rigorous investigation into the person's life and writings to determine whether he or she demonstrates a heroic level of virtue, offered their life or suffered martyrdom. A miracle attributed to the person's intercession must be proved.
In the first five centuries of the Church, the process for recognizing a saint was based on public acclaim or the vox populi, vox Dei (voice of the people, voice of God). There was no formal canonical process as understood by today's standards. Beginning in the sixth century and continuing into the twelfth century, the intervention of the local bishop was required before someone could be canonized. The intervention of the local bishop usually began with a request from the local community for the bishop to recognize someone a saint. Upon studying the request and a written biography, if he found it favorable, the bishop would typically issue a decree, legitimatize the liturgical cult and thereby canonize the person.
Starting in the tenth century, a cause proceeded with the usual steps, i.e. the person's reputation would spread, a request to the local bishop from the people to declare the person a saint occurred, and a biography would be written for the bishop's review. Now however, the bishop would collect eyewitness testimony of those who knew the person and who had witnessed miracles, and he would provide a summary of the case to the Pope for his approval. The Pope then reviewed the cause, and if he approved it, he issued a decree declaring the person a canonized saint. The first documented case of papal invention is by Pope John XV on January 31, 993 for the canonization of St. Ulric. When Pope Sixtus V reorganized the Roman Curia in 1588 he established the Congregation for Sacred Rites. One of its functions was to assist the Pope with reviewing causes. Except for a few canonical developments, from 1588 the process of canonization remained the same until 1917 when a universal Code of Canon Law was promulgated.
No precise count exists of those who have been proclaimed saints since the first centuries. However, in 1988, to mark its 4th centenary, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints published the first "Index ac Status Causarum." This book and its subsequent supplements, written entirely in Latin, are considered the definitive index of all causes that have been presented to the Congregation since its institution.
The American Church has been blessed with numerous Saints, Blesseds and Venerables, all of whom in their own unique way witness to Christ's love through their martyrdom or virtuous lives within our American culture.
