While I reject the certainty and abuse of the Romish doctrine regarding the Invocation of the Saints, I’ve come to believe that the ancient practice both honors God and is good for me.  The practice affirms that which the world around me denies.

Whether the practice accomplishes anything in the Undiscovered Country is more than we know, but there is no doubt that it shapes those of us who are still on this side.

Fr. Hart expresses this well in his post on The Invocation of the Saints.
