Medical Saints

Jacalyn Duffin

Oxford University Press

The 2010 canonization of the second Canadian-born saint, Brother André, and of Australia’s first saint, Mother Mary MacKillop, resulted in massive media attention to saint making and the role of miracles in the process. This coverage simply highlights the gulf of understanding between skeptics and believers and it proclaims the public fascination with the whole topic. It also forced the author to decide about her own position: she remains an atheist who believes in miracles.
