Overview ST. JOSEPH BEGINNER'S BOOK OF SAINTS Saints are persons who have lived very holy Christian lives on earth and are now in heaven. The Church offers them as models for us to imitate. The Church says: "Here are some models for you to follow. If you do what the Saints did, according to your ability, and listen to their counsel, you can achieve what they achieved." This is one of the main reasons for the Church's custom of honoring the Saints. They are not only our intercessors in heaven but also examples of virtue for us on earth.
