Chevalier Charles Coulombe on 'St Patrick Never Canonised?'

Posted on 21 March, four days after St Patrick's Feast Day, the question was asked by a gentleman whose Christian name is Patrick. He was obviously researching his Name Saint, and was surprised to find that he had never been 'officially' canonised.

The Chevalier explains why this is so, and how Saints were proclaimed prior to the 'formalisation' of the process in the 11th and 12th centuries.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
