The saints are indeed gods. Christ, through the Prophet David, said, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you." St. Paul says in Romans that we are "heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ." St. Peter in his second epistle says that we "may participate in the divine nature." St. John in his first epistle says that at the end, "when it is revealed we shall be like him [Christ]..." When the Son became Man he made our nature godlike. It was even further perfected when Christ ascended into Heaven and enthroned our nature at the right hand of the Father.
And the saints have many divine attributes. Here are but a few: faith, hope, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (I Corinthians 13:13; Galatians 5:22-23)
It should be noted though that we are called to the same. Those saints which are glorified by the Church are not inherently unique. We are called to be like them. Like them we are called to imitate Christ.
