What makes a person a saint?
Msgr. James Shea, President of the University of Mary, joins Jessica to talk about FOCUS alumna Michelle Duppong, who passed away from cancer in 2015. The Diocese of Bismarck recently opened an investigation into Michelle’s life of holiness, which could eventually lead to her canonization. Jessica and Msgr. Shea discuss:
- What does it mean that the diocese has opened an investigation into Michelle’s life of holiness?
- When a diocese begins the investigation process to declare someone a saint, what are they looking for? What does it mean to be a saint?
- Why could Michelle Duppong be a saint?
