The Saints' Embrace

"We believe that the multitude of those gathered around Jesus and Mary in paradise forms the Church of Heaven where in eternal beatitude they see God as He is, and where they also, in different degrees, are associated with the holy angels in the divine rule exercised by Christ in glory, interceding for us and helping our weakness by their brotherly care."

 

- Pope Paul VI, Credo of the People of God, 29.

 

The newly-restored reredos in St Aloysius' church in Oxford expresses the Church's faith in the communion of saints.
