We’re back with a surprisingly focused episode on sainthood thanks to Jenny’s hard work and research! We’ve only a little bit of off-topic material to discuss: A quick word about the list of questions our Patrons send in, and a brief diversion to discuss Nintendo’s Koi Koi game played with hanafuda cards. We also answer Patreon supporter Tom Stephens’s question about the one place in the world we’d go, if we could go anywhere at all.
After that’s done, it’s time for a deep dive into sainthood. After all, we’d eventually like to do a full series on individual saints and important Church figures; but we figured we’d need a primer on sainthood first, and Jenny definitely provided! Her research covers what a ‘saint’ is, how one becomes a canonized saint in the Roman Catholic church, and much more. We also discuss the use of saints as a concept for games and worldbuilding.
