Angels and saints. Catholics are inclined to give some thought to them as different from the remainder of us. They’re solid in plaster or simpering on a holy card, appearing miracles with superhero power, or taking part in a harp in maximum heaven.
Yet they're very as regards to us in each means. during this vigorous booklet, Scott Hahn dispels the fake notions and concrete legends humans use to maintain the saints at a secure distance. the fact is that Jesus Christ has united heaven and earth in a detailed communion. Drawing deeply from Scripture, Dr. Hahn indicates that the hosts of heaven encompass the earthly Church as a "great cloud of witnesses." The martyrs cry out from heaven’s altar begging for justice on the planet. The prayers of the saints and angels upward push to God, within the booklet of Revelation, just like the candy aroma of incense.
Dr. Hahn tells the tales of numerous saints (and a number of angels too) in a manner that’s clean and new. The saints are non secular giants yet with flesh-and-blood truth. they've got robust, holy ambitions—and robust temptations and competition that has to be conquer. Their tales are notable and but regularly occurring sufficient to encourage us to stay extra appealing lives. during this telling in their tale, the saints are neither otherworldly nor this-worldly. They exemplify the built-in lifestyles that each Christian is termed to live.
Still, their lives are as varied from each other as human lives could be. Dr. Hahn indicates the heavenly Church in all its kaleidoscopic diversity—from Moses to Mary, Augustine to Therese, and the 1st century to the final century.
Only saints will stay in heaven. we have to be extra just like the saints if we wish to stay in heaven sometime. Dr. Hahn exhibits us that our heavenly existence can start now.
