In the Shadow of Mass Destruction
This epilogue first describes the socially layered and geographically interconnected discrepancies with regards to stories of San Vitores' life and death. It then argues that form and manner of San Vitores' resurfacing in the postwar years features a proliferation of meanings that contrast sharply with the singular narrative wielded by the Vatican, and by local supporters of the Cause to canonize San Vitores. The present study has labored to find alternative meanings in San Vitores' past and present that are neither simply celebratory nor diametrically oppositional. Such alternative stories and meanings are needed because whoever we understand ourselves to be and wherever we end up calling home, we will continue to be at the mercy of those who speak in the name of God and who have at their disposal the smallest, or the largest, weapons of mass destruction to unleash on those who are not with them in their holy crusade.
