Definition of a Saint
The term 'Saint' is used in Christian religions, including the Roman Catholic religion, to describe a person who is perceived of being an example of great holiness and virtue and considered capable of interceding with God on behalf of a person who prayed to them. This person has died and has been declared a saint by canonization. The Roman Catholic Church has an official process for creating saints.
Martyrs and Patron Saints
There are two categories of saints: martyrs and confessors. Many Patron Saints are referred to as Christian martyrs. A martyr is one who is murdered or put to death for his Christian faith or convictions. Many Christian martyrs and Patron Saints suffered cruel and torturous deaths like stoning, crucifixion, and burning at the stake. The word 'martyr' comes from the Greek word translated "witness." Martyrdom is the result of religious persecution. The first known Christian martyr was Saint Stephen as recorded in the Acts 6:8–8:3, who was stoned to death for his faith.
