In this episode I will focus on some lost saints in Catholicism. Today's focus will be upon St. Josaphat. Canonized back in the Middle Ages Josaphat remained a Catholic saint until sometime in the 20th century when scholars realized the historical Josaphat was most likely an Indian Prince known to many as Buddha. To some the canonization of Buddha as a Catholic saint is seen as an embarassment. I, on the other hand, view the mix up through the eyes of humor and hope. If Christians could honor the Buddha as a saint for centuries (even mistakenly through a grand mix up of historical details) then there is hope that common ground can be found between Buddhism, Catholicism, and many other World Religions.
