We have some great saints praying for us! Praying with the saints was one thing that attracted my family to the Catholic Church. I love that the Church has officially declared that so many virtuous people are in Heaven, seeing the face of God. The Church has not declared, however, that a person is definitively in hell. So we live in HOPE and wait on God's MERCY and LOVE and JUSTICE.
Yes- we only have four children here on earth- so one of these seven patrons is praying WITH our child in heaven for the rest of us...the one patron who has not been officially declared a saint, yet.
