How Do We Paint Disfigurement and Bodily Imperfections in Saints? NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - November 6, 2015 Blessed Margaret of Castello is the patron saint of unwanted and disabled children.

This characterization of More comports with John Paul II's longstanding account of conscience. As early as 1962, while auxiliary Bishop of Krakow, he wrote: "The conscience provides the basis for the definitive structure [of the self] and defines me as that unique and unrepeatable self or I." Bolt's distaste for Catholicism notwithstanding, he and the pope both stress the inseparability of selfhood and conscience.
