Do Catholics Worship Saints?

Added 22 June 2017 by Fr. Mike Schmitz

Fr. Mike Schmitz wants to straighten out some confusion regarding Catholics’ veneration of saints. In this video he explains how—far from being icons to worship—statues and paintings of the saints are reminders of what God can do in someone’s life, so honoring the saints doesn’t take away from the glory we give God. It actually brings him greater glory.
