Pope Francis will make Junipero Serra a saint on Sept. 23
"Although credited with bringing Christianity to the western United States, Father Junipero Serra has been vilified by Native Americans who say the mission system was tantamount to genocide. Pope Francis will make him a saint on Sept. 23 in Washington, D.C., which means Serra is in heaven and able to intercede with God on the faithful’s behalf."
