A listener who attended a Lutheran school called St. Olaf asks: Do Protestants have saints? In this clip from the "Ask Sister" podcast, Immaculate Heart of Mary Sr. Maxine Kollasch and Franciscan Sr. Shannon Schrein discuss the commonalities Christian traditions have in valuing the communion of saints who have gone before us. Even without an official process like the Catholic Church's canonization, believers find inspiration and comfort in these everyday people who've done extraordinary things for their faith.
