Becoming a Saint

See here for an example of how recognition of many Orthodox Saints begins with grassroots devotion and memory-keeping: Blessed Olga of Alaska.

Timely enough, after death she is being associated with the problem of sexual abuse and the healing of memories thereof.

(“Blessed” is a title not officially conferred by the Orthodox as by the Catholics. For us it sometimes just grows up around certain Saints. So does “Venerable.”)
