Since they're not dead yet, just translated, are they (Enoch and Elijah) referred to as Saints?
"And what use are the victories on the battlefield if we are ourselves are defeated in our innermost personal selves?" - St. Maximilian Kolbe

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

I don't imaging Adolf is very popular.
Would you like to shake hands with Pope 1 or Pope 2 -

Yes: they're St Elias and St Henoch. In the Eastern Churches, they're given the moniker or title of 'saint'. There's a St Elijah or St Elias Melchite Catholic Church about an hour or so away from me.

I have a nephew named Francis, named before Pope Francis was elected.  I actually once thought someone was talking about the Pope when they were really talking about my nephew.  It would be even more embarrassing to explain the exact context.

[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
