Q: What role do saints play in Catholicism?

A: Saints are the success stories of Christianity … the people who have already “made it” to Heaven.

And if THEY could do it, than by God, WE can, too!

And once Heaven has been obtained, Christ promises that the saints will rule and reign with him, as co-heirs.

This is why Catholics believe in the power of saintly intercession. Not to take anything away from Jesus … but to reflect his glory through the ultimate perfection of his creatures … who are the saints in Heaven … the Blessed Virgin Mary being first among them, in the order of God’s grace.
