Last night on CNN I saw the documentary linked below on the canonization process in the Catholic Church. The story is about one particular cause for sainthood. The role of lay lawyers acting as postulators in this process is intriguing. The story doesn't offer much detail about the work they do, but it is interesting nonetheless.
