Why do we believe in the Communion of Saints?

In the Creed we profess belief in the Communion of Saints.


The Church canonizes Saints and celebrates their lives at Mass for three reasons:


  1. To encourage asking their help and prayers 
  2. That their lives become a model to be imitated  
  3. They give us encouragement; if Christ can do it in them, He can do it in me
