31. Why do we Believe the Saints will help us?


Jesuits in San Jose, California
1953

Why do we believe that the saints will help us?
We believe that the saints will help us because both they and we are members of the same Church, and they love us as their brethren.

How are the saints and we members of the same Church?
The saints and we are members of the same Church, because the Church in heaven and the Church on earth are one and the same Church, and all its members are in communion with one another.
Advanced Catechism of Catholic Faith, 1922
