Praying to the Saints - X

Praying to the Saints - Why do we Venerate the Saints? 
Overlooking the Obvious (III)

The problem here is one of what might be called a primitive or even childish view of heaven.

It is certainly not one on which enough intellectual rigour has been exercised.

A good introduction to the real implications of the afterlife may be found in Frank Sheed’s book Theology and Sanity, which argues that sanity depends on an accurate appreciation of reality, and that includes an accurate appreciation of what heaven is really like.

And once that is known, the place of  prayer to the saints follows.
