I wish I could wrap up the saints in gold paper with a bow on top to give to our Protestant brothers and sisters.
When/who threw out the importance of and the inspiration and history of the saints in the Protestant world? All that is left are new-age inspirations from modern authors who have little more knowledge of the truth than their readers.
Now, I know the "why" to this question, and that is strictly because all saints were devoutly Catholic in all their works, writings, and mysticism. But, I would think the lives, examples, and martyrdom of these holy people would still make the ranks of inspiration for the Protestant faith.
Anyone know when/where/who abandoned these beautiful saints for the rest of Protestantism?
Thank you, and God's many blessings be upon you!
