Frank's understanding of God and religion is somewhat confused at this point. He doesn't understand the concepts and questions the small things, which are in fact a very large part of the Catholic Church's formalilties. In this instance, Frank is referring to the Saints and their actions, the whole picture, and the way it is presented to him...... the full quote is as follows;

" I don't understand God at all and even if I'd like to be a saint and have everyone adore me I'd never suck the snot of a leper."
