Many Catholic believers give importance to the feast of saints because most of our churches and institutions are under the patronage of saints. However, the prominent feast in the church is that of God who is the source of all blessings. Saints are models of our faith and charity, and we ask their intercessory prayers for us. We venerate them as Christian heroes and do not worship them. Only God with the three persons deserves our worship. When we received baptism in the Trinitarian formula, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit came within us. Let us worship the Most Holy Trinity with a better understanding based on the profession of faith of the Catholic church as given in the Nicene Creed.
