So the Scriptures tell us that the Saints will rule in Heaven with Jesus, right?

Has anyone, I’m looking at Catholics here but open to input from all sectors, thought of this idea in relation to the Catholic understanding of the Communion of Saints? Is part of this ruling the intercessory role that the Saints fill for us on earth?

I mean, how does Christ rule? Christ’s reign, from what Sacred Scripture tells us, consists largely of intercession and standing continually before the Father as a Lamb Slain. That being the case, what would we expect the ruling-with-Christ that the Saints have been promised to look like other than an imitation of His own style of ruling?

Makes a bit more sense of the whole Patron Saint idea in my mind. Thoughts?
