“The communion of saints means that the body of Christ is a glorious and unified mystery. It means I am one with all the saints in heaven, just as I am one with all the saints alive today in China. But if I were crossing a street, saw a truck with no brakes hurtling toward me, and cried out, ‘Wang Tu, pray for me!’ my problem is simple to identify. I am assuming that the doctrine of the communion of saints gives Wang Tu greater hearing abilities than he in fact has. So the problem is not heavenly saints praying. The problem lies, not in the praying there, but in the prayer requests here” (Papa Don’t Pope, pp. 145-146).
