November 16, 2015 – All Carmelite Saints and Souls

Why do we ask for the intercession of the Saints to help us in our needs?  Why don’t we Catholics just talk to God alone? How do we explain this to those who don’t understand why we do this?  How can I become a Saint?  What does it take?  What guidance do I get from Scripture?  What happened to St. Teresa of Avila to make her have a “determined determination” to pray for souls and trust in God?  How might we imitate her?  These are the many questions that Mark and Frances discuss.  We are most grateful for the insights we gleaned from Fr. Don Brick, OCD, on this topic.
