The Life and Legacy of Father Junipero Serra

Part of the dedication of the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels includes a relic of Father Serra, destined for the altarstone. Inspired by this event, guest host Patt Morrison talks about the life, legacy and canonization process of Father Junipero Serra, who came to Alta California in 1769 to establish the mission system. Joining Patt are Richard Boudreaux, Mexico City Bureau Chief for the LA Times, Richard Carrico, adjunct professor at San Diego State University's Department of American Indian Studies and Father Joe Scerbo, a Franciscan friar of the Atonement on the pastoral staff at Mission San Juan Capistrano.
