What is a Saint?

Probably there is no better definition than that of a child, who remembered seeing pictures of them in the stained glass windows of his church. “Saints,” he said, “are people that the light shines through.”


And that is just what they are. Saints are people of almost every imaginable description. Some of them were very brilliant people, some were very simple. Some were high born – kings, queens, princes, princesses, noble men and women; others were peasants, humble fisherfolk, shepherds, laborers, housewives. Some felt called to remain single and celibate; others were married and reared families. Some were sweet and even-tempered; others were by nature easily provoked, excitable or even “difficult to live with.” But through them all the Light shines through, the light of God’s love, the light of His presence, the light of Jesus Christ.
And so they are given to encourage and inspire us to become more Christlike ourselves.


C.S. Lewis wrote, “The great sinners are made of the very same material as…the great saints.”


-Hal McElwaine Helms, Saints Alive


Saints, broadly speaking, are holy men and women who have lived exemplary Christian lives, filled with virtue and dedicated to the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church recognizes over 10,000 saints, many of which are patron saints. A patron saint is a saint who is regarded as the intercessor and advocate in heaven of a nation, place, craft, activity, class, or person. Patron saints, because they have already transcended to the metaphysical, are able to intercede effectively for the needs of their special charges.

Like all Christians, Catholics believe in life after death. Those who have lived good lives and died in the faith of Christ will, as the Bible tells us, share in his resurrection. While we live together on earth as Christians, we are in communion, or unity, with one another. But that communion doesn’t end when one of us dies. We believe that Christians in heaven, the saints, remain in communion with those of us on earth. So, just as we might ask a friend or family member to pray for us, we can approach a saint with our prayers, too.
