I have heard the term "Consensus of the Saints" come up before. What exactly does that mean? I have also read that it is described at the mind of the Church, but again, what does all this mean? Does it mean the unified belief and teaching on a certain issue by the fathers and bishops of a particular Synod? Or is there an "active" role played by the Saints and Jesus too (ie, there is the word "Saint" in "Consensus of the Saints" so I am curious how they play a role)? Thank you for the help.
