What to Teach the RCIA Class about the Saints?

This coming Sunday, (and the Monday evening following) I've been asked to teach the RCIA Catechumens and Candidates from my parish a class on the Communion of Saints. What should I tell them? What questions should I be prepared for? What do you think they want to know? What would you like to know if you were them?

Aside from the dry, formulaic, and dare I say it, boring (!) presentations on the saints that many have endured, what would you suggest?

I'm excited about the saints, because as you know, I think they are hards corps. So I don't think I'll bore anyone to death, but I don't want to scare anyone either (the horror!). And I'm humble enough to admit that I don't have all the answers either.

So shoot me your suggestions in the comm box below. And I promise an "after-action" report when I'm all finished (including how many people I put to sleep).

Thanks for your help!
