"I believe in the...communion of saints." Today Pope Benedict XVI canonized five new saints! About the "communion of saints, the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches: Exactly as Christian communion among our fellow pilgrims brings us closer to Christ, so our communion with the saints joins us to Christ, from whom as from its fountain and head issues all grace, and the life of the People of God itself (#957).
And so, today we ask St. Zygmunt Felinski, St. Francis Coll y Guitart, St. Joseph Damien de Veuster, St. Raphael Baron, and St. Mary of the Cross (Jeanne) Jugan to better join us to Christ!
All holy men and women, pray for us!
