What is the definition of ‘communion of saints’?
I always believed it to mean that the saints hear us when we pray to them and they intercede for us.
Here’s an excerpt from my 8 year old’s CCD text he just got today:
"The church is sometimes called the ‘communion of saints’. This means that the members of the Church on earth, in purgatory, and in heaven are all united. The saints join you in worshipping the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
This is a new one on me. Maybe someone can enlighten me?
