==Saints in the Bible==
==Saints in the Church==
Aside from the more general use of the word ''saint'' to refer to all members of the Church, [[Holy Tradition]] also ascribes ''Saint'' as a an title to particular persons whose lives have shown most clearly what it means to follow [[Jesus Christ]]. These saints are popularly [[glorification|glorified]] (canonized) by the Church, often in the modern era with a formal service to recognize and affirm the [[veneration]] of them by the faithful.
Saints are not thought of as either perfect or infallible, and it is will be only because of the work of Christ in them that this the Church praises these people. It is because we see our Lord's countenance reflected most clearly in their faces that this we publicly laud them, ask them to pray for us, and or encourage one another to follow their examples.
