Paragraph 2683

2683. The witnesses who have preceded us into the kingdom,41especially those whom the Church recognizes as saints, share in the living tradition of prayer by the example of their lives, the transmission of their writings, and their prayer today. They contemplate God, praise him and constantly care for those whom they have left on earth. When they entered into the joy of their Master, they were “put in charge of many things.”42Their intercession is their most exalted service to God’s plan. We can and should ask them to intercede for us and for the whole world.
