The Saints: Why do we need them and what do they look like? - Fr Stephen Wang and Hannah Vaughan-Spruce

Fr Stephen Wang explains the theology of ‘the Communion of Saints': What is the call to sanctity? How are we united with each other through faith and prayer? Why are some individuals canonised and put before us as spiritual friends and role-models?

Hannah Vaughan-Spruce examines in more detail the lives of some recent saints: What does holiness actually look like? What common threads run through the lives of the great saints? How can we ourselves grow in holiness in the ordinary circumstances of our lives?
