It might be meaningful to say that a 'saint' doesn't have anything
other people doesn't, but the gods are especially likely to work
through them because they're especially suited to channeling them.  If
the god doesn't choose to send power through a saint, there's nothing
at all unusual about them.

The Golden General somehow seems to have actually been granted powers
and abilities.  I know at one point he's described by a character as
an 'avatar', and that description may be more accurate than was
realized.  Perhaps GG was an attempt by the Father to establish a
foothold in the world of matter, to actually enter into the (overtly)
physical world?
