Derek Carr (Assoc. Professor Emeritus, UBC) spoke about obscure saints such as St. Cucufate (a.k.a. Cucuphas). The parish priest of San Cucufate de Llanera (in northern Spain) had written to UBC’s Museum of Anthropology and Derek was asked to comment on the veracity of Juan Garcia’s letter. Not only martyrs, but also little-known saints were beatified in recognition of their exemplary lives after confirming their miracles. The veneration of saints shows reverence for holy Christians who have gone before us, while adoration is reserved for God. The “fast track” Canonization process has been critiqued as politically motivated in some cases. We prayed the Lord’s Prayer after discussing a┬árange of beliefs about intercessory prayer. [KH]
