Canonization of St. Patrick
Question from jeanne on 10/21/2001:

What is the date of the canonization of St. Patrick?

Answer by Dr. Warren Carroll on 10/21/2001:

The modern canonization procedure was not developed by the Church until about the 13th century. Before that, a popular veneration of a saint would develop, which the Church eventually approved or disapproved, often not specifically declaring approval or disapproval, but just allowing it to continue if they approved of it. - Dr. Carroll
