I believe that the saints have symbols because people are prone todeification of humans, and like to place attributes and applygovernance on religious leaders in order to simp…lify their conceptof God, work with God to solve a problem, or make specificrequests. Also, Catholicism was developed over time, and modifieditself in order to accommodate the pre-existing spiritual beliefsof the many cultures that they imposed their religion upon. Many ofthese cultures were polytheistic and already had attributes andsymbols assigned to the gods they worshipped, so as they assumedCatholicism, they retained their gods through matching them up withsaints. Syncretic religions such as Santeria illustrate thisconcept. Additionally, some saints specialized over certain areasbecause of their life work, and are remembered for what they weregood at or the concepts or things that they supported.
