SaintCast 57, Frei Galvao

A New Saint for the New World – as Pope Benedict travels to Brazil to canonize the first Brazilian-born Saint. We profile this holy man and priest from Sao Paolo, Frei Galvao.

We also discuss marathon training, a case of ‘Blackberry thumb,’ and the new Ustream technology. Darth Vader is there on the outside of the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., as a type of gargoyle. This and more feedback on SaintCast #57.
