We consider the Saints as Men and Women who experienced the freedom of Christ, lived that freedom and shared that freedom. They are holy men and women, who then after death, were taken into heaven, into that inner life of the Holy Trinity.
Still in heaven, the Saints remain present and active in our lives, seeking to share and spread the Good News. So we as Catholics ask for their help; through miracles and through examples.
November 1st is ALL SAINTS DAY, in which we especially remember our friends who still help us.
