The marks of Christ

We turn to part 2 of Communion of the Saints, "Sancti" which means the communion of holy persons.

There are 2 states of the communion of holy persons: those in heaven; those purified in purgatory; and those of us living here on earth.

Those in heaven continue interceding for us. 

Those in purgatory also help us as we help them reach heaven.

Those of us here on earth should take up what St. Therese believed, "I want to spend heaven doing good on earth."

All of us take up after Christ who leads us into communion with him and with one another.
