November - December 2013
The communion of saints is one of the fundamental tenets of the Catholic Faith. The reality of heaven is made concrete by the knowledge that some souls are already happily united with Our Lord after death. Churches, art and architecture: all bear witness to the example provided by the saints.
Throughout history, there have been different methods and processes to determine who should be included in the heavenly chorus. With some of the problems of the current crisis, however, we now have to ask basic questions: What is a saint supposed to be? How is sanctity determined? What should we do? We hope these pages provide some clarity.
