There are a lot of people who accuse Catholics of worshipping the saints. Why would we pray to them if we can just pray to Jesus directly? Imagine this: you are holding a pizza fundraiser and you need some pizza ovens for the event to
be successful. You know that a friend of a friend has a pizza oven. Instead of going right to the friend of a friend
who you don’t know that well, you go to your friend and ask them to go to their friend to request borrowing the pizza
oven. Your friend knows their friend better than you because they have spent more time with them and they know
how to ask for things from this person and how to hear their response. The same is true with the saints. The saints have
been spending their eternity with Jesus. They know Him better than we ever could while we are here on earth. Because they lived lives similar to ours, they can understand our needs and desires and present them to Jesus for us
