Saints and Holy places

Saint Paul was a Jew, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee; and his kinsfolk called his name “Saul,” the well-known interpretation of which is, “given.”  He was a young man of handsome appearance, upright in stature, and ruddy, like the rind of a pomegranate.  His face was open, his nose was large, above his eyes was kohl, his cheeks were [like] an open rose, and his beard was full.  He was learned in the Law of the Torah, and he was jealous for the same.

Peter was from Bethsaida, and he was a fisherman.  Our Lord chose him on the second day following that whereon He was baptized, and He chose Andrew his brother before him.  And having chosen Saint Peter, He made him chief of the apostles, and he continued to minister to our Redeemer until the time of His death and Passion.  He had fervent faith, and strong zeal, and love for God.

The word holy (kidus) in Geez denotes being special, pure and esteemed. This prefix is an attribute to denote the nature of God since God is Holy by nature. Hence the word holiness is given to saints and blessed people who are at the service of Him who is Holy by nature.
We address angels as saints. We call them so since they are free from all evil things, act and go in God’s way and praise Him. Blessed people who have attained angelic status are also called saints. God himself has said “Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am Holy” (Lev. 19:2; 1Pet 1:15-16).
