Many think that the Saints are far from us.
However, they are only far
The Saints are like our Lord Jesus Christ. from those who distance themselves from them.
So, too, are all those They are very close
who keep the Commandments of Christ. to those who keep the Commandments of Christ
Those who live according to their own passions and who have the Grace of the Holy Spirit.
and who do not Repent In Heaven all things are moved by the Holy Spirit
are like the devil. Who is also with us on Earth -
If this vital Divine Mystery was revealed to the world in our Holy Church and in our Holy Mysteries.
Every sinner would stop serving the evil one The Holy Spirit is in Holy Scripture
and they would all strive to serve our Lord God and in the soul of those who are Faithful.
with all their strength with all their being - God the Holy Spirit Unites all things.
and ceaselessly endeavour to be like Him! Therefore the Saints are close to us.
And when we pray to them
The Holy Spirit hears our Prayers
And our soul knows that they are all praying for us.
