Do you have to be dead to be a saint?

October 11, 2013
It’s true that in order to be declared a saint you have to be dead; you also have to have two confirmed miracles! But is that what sainthood is about? Do you really have to be dead in order to be a saint? Is there anyone you know whom you'd call a saint? Does being a Saint mean more than just someone who is in Heaven? These are some of the questions that we’ll be looking at in this all-new Perspectives: The Weekly Edition.
Join Deacon Pedro as he sits with Sr. Marie Paul Curley, FSP, co-author of two new books, Saints Alive! The Faith Proclaimed and Saints Alive! The Gospel Witnessed to speak about holiness and sainthood tonight, Friday, October 11, 2013 or Sunday, October 13, 2013, 7 and 11pm ET (8pm PT), and join our discussion on Facebook
