In the Orthodox Christian Church Saints are believed to be selected by God and that Christ lives through them.
Christ is the lamp that came from the Heavens to cast a radiant light across a world full of shadows and darkened hues. This is the light that all Christians are called to become. A radiant beam that displays God for all the world to see, even in the midst of the storms. There are those, for reasons only known by God and Christ, who have been set aside for greater things. These individuals are called to exist at a higher level, and or to suffer at a higher level, than many are. They inspire, educate, and lead the weary through the life they have been called to live. Their grace and dignity in which they have lived their faith screams loudly for a lost world to recognize and honor. One of the greatest recognition bestowed on any of the Faithful would be that as a Saint.
