Ah, but being a saint in Catholocism means so much more.

Oh I totally agree with that. I was trying to put into Earthly terms the rationale behind the canonization process. Kind of like when you ask someone to pray for you, it's akin to accessing for intercession from Saints.

Not quite. The saints, in this case, are dead. That makes all the difference in the world.
