Religion: Unsure, maybe Catholic? raised...
Default How do we know the saints in Heaven can hear us?

What gets me concerned is the claim by Angelica Zambrano, in which she saw Pope John Paul II inHell with Michael Jackson, Selena, and children being tortured by demons manifested by pokemon (the distractions form Christ) and the in Heaven, Mary cannot hear us. Now, I am very cautious about this, because some of it seems like evangelical propaganda, but what makes me concerned is this: Colton Burpo in Heaven is for Real, at one point, he meets his great grandfather, who asks him if he is the child of his grandson...

but... Revelation 6:9-11 makes me wonder:
"9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. 10 They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” 11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters,[a] were killed just as they had been."

Default Re: How do we know the saints in Heaven can hear us?

The easy answer is, because the Church teaches us infallibly that it is so.

The more difficult answer is, because sometimes they talk back. (And don't think for a moment it isn't kind of scary when it actually happens.)

Ask yourself this question about Angelica Zambrano: by what authority does she speak? And ask yourself as well whether the meaning of scripture, such as Revelation 6, is a matter of private interpretation. Faith is a lifetime quest; I support you with prayer in yours.
O come let us sing to the Lord our God
Let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation
