Catholic Answers School of Apologetics DVD Version: Defending the Saints
After the Marian doctrines, the Catholic doctrine of the intercession of the saints may elicit more challenges from Protestants than any other topic.
Doesn’t the Bible say we’re all saints?
How can the saints possibly hear the prayers of everyone on earth?
Isn’t praying to dead saints not only idolatrous, but also the unbiblical practice of necromancy?
If Jesus is the “one mediator between God and men” (1 Tim. 2:5), isn’t it wrong to ask the saints to mediate for us with God?
Catholics believe that the souls of those who were saved by Jesus not only live forever in his presence, but that we who are still on earth have fellowship with them. This sense of solidarity with all those who live in Christ is ancient and unbroken—but it’s also a source of confusion and sometimes even hostility for non-Catholic Christians.
In this course Defending the Saints, Karlo explains this beautiful Catholic teaching in a way that’s easy to understand and share, with solid biblical arguments dispelling many myths about our belief and practice regarding the saints.
