In Catholic Tradition, a Saint is a person who is recognised as having an exceptional degree of holiness, likeness, or closeness to God. By their canonisation, they are presented to Catholics are worthy of veneration and for their great example to be followed as a path towards holiness.
Those called Blessed are recognised to a lesser extent, but still as offering a great example of holiness to the faithful. Beatification is a recognised step, for some, towards their canonisation.
