 Can an Orthodox pray to a Catholic saint?

Post by Lucian Hodoboc »

Can an Orthodox Christian ask for intercessory prayer from a saint belonging to the Catholic denomination? Or would doing so be considered a sin? :unknown:

You can pray to pre-schism saints. That's as far as I know.

What about pre-schism saints that were canonized post-schism?
