Becoming a saint

We are all called to be saints.
A saint is someone who has lived a virtuous,
holy life; whose life is worthy of
imitation. There are three steps
to someone being officially
recognised as a saint.

Venerable: their life is seen
as having been lived virtuously.
Blessed: a miracle through the
candidate’s intercession is recognised.
Saint: a second miracle is recognised.
