Why would anyone believe that the only saints are the ones that the Catholic Church deem are saints? Scriptures tell us that as believers in Jesus Christ we are all saints. We were told by Jesus Christ himself .. "Do not pray to me, but pray to our Father in my name." Don't you see, Jesus didn't even want us to pray to him, then why would you put your prayers in the hands of someone or something other than our Father in Heaven? Free your self from earthly man's beliefs, make your own relationship with God. Throw off the bonds of the Catholic theology and life life the way JESUS wanted us to...with a personal relationship with God our Father. Call no man on Earth your father..we have one Father as Christian's and that is our Holy Father in Heaven.
