St. Moritz, a Forgotten Saint

Christmas is one of the most significant days in the Christian calendar. It's a time when many people attend services to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. One local filmmaker believes it's also a time to recognize the contribution of saints to the Catholic faith, especially those who are often overlooked.

Mario Valdez of Cambridge produced a recent documentary that features a black saint he says has been all but forgotten. WBUR's Bianca Vazquez Toness has the story.

This program aired on December 22, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
