A '''saint''' (from Latin, ''sanctus'') is one who is '''holy''', that is, set apart for God's service.
==Saints in the Bible==
Saints are not thought of as either perfect or infallible, and it is only because of the work of Christ in them that the Church praises these people. It is because we see our Lord's countenance reflected most clearly in their faces that we publicly laud them, ask them to pray for us, and encourage one another to follow their examples.
