More Friends Than You Can Count: Why Catholics Pray With the Saints

The saints in Heaven are alive and are perpetually in prayer. They are absolutely living in Heaven, just as you and I live, but to an even fuller extent, because they are back home with God. He is “the God of the living, not of the dead” (Mark 12:26-27).
