The Intercession of Saints

A Saint is a person who has been canonized by the Church. They are people of exceptional faith who have miracles associated with their lives. Saints are said to be venerated, or honored. People do often pray to Saints. Intercession is what they are hoping to achieve.

Intercession is a term describing Saints adding their voice to that of those praying to them. Because a Saint was once a human being, it is thought by many that they are more accessible to those of us on Earth.

Many erroneously believe that the intercession of Saints to be a purely Catholic convention. Many denominations recognize Sainthood. In fact, some non-Christian groups even recognize Saints! A few Saints recognized by many denominations include:

  • Mary, mother of Jesus
  • Joseph, Mary's husband
  • The Apostles
  • Mary Magdalene

People of many denominations turn to a Saint when they pray. At When Saints Intercede, we are collecting stories of these prayers.
