This is what saints look like.
Of course, saints are by definition already dead, so if you want to meet a saint you must catch him or her while still alive. It seems that my advert in the Tablet, "SAVED PERSON WOULD LIKE TO MEET SAINT. OBJECT: DOING GOOD THINGS" was doomed to failure.
Still, you may be able to spot embryonic saints going about their everyday business.
The halo is sometimes a give-away.
For the purposes of this post, we shall have to exclude the latter-day saints, many of whom may be wonderful people but are not quite what we had in mind. Luckily, someone has given me a little book, which will help me with my saint-hunting.
Have you seen any of these people recently?
By the way, did someone overlook Pope Pius XII?
