The Catholic Saints, both men and women are known for their unique meanings. They have gone through trials and tribulations which have made it possible for them to be named saints. The men and women who have dedicated their lives to God and a greater purpose had to undergo approval through specific miracles and a process which was overseen by the highest officials of the Catholic Clergy. The process to become a saint was very long and drawn out in the past but times have changed.
Men who became saints were known for their meanings. They often related to strength, bravery and other positive masculine roles. These were often seen by those who celebrated their sacrifices as powerful sources of strength to get through hardships with help from the lord. The celebration of their specific celebratory days makes them special and offers the help of their specific meanings. Men have also had some feminine roles in their meanings as well with some meanings that are simply unrelated to anything in particular. Men are very important in their place as saints but there are so many of them and their meanings may overlap with other male saints.
Women who became saints also had very unique meanings for their sainthood. The most common meanings related to serenity, calmness, virginity, kindness and beauty towards the wellbeing of mankind. This makes them very feminine in nature, but there are meanings which also have negative connotations. Their meanings will also go towards some of the most unfortunate and destructive situations as well. Victims of disease and neglect, reaping of death and other situations are also part of the association of female saint meanings. There are so many female saints that listing them all in one place would take a long time to accurately do.
