"City of God" VIII.25-27

Chapter 25:
We must not seek mediation from demons, or even from angels, because we are rather to be becoming more like them (the angels, anyway) in their perfect worship of God. That we are not yet there is a result of sin and the flesh, and not the lack of intermediary action on their part.

Chapter 26-27:
Nor do we worship dead men, though we understand that we do have a relationship of a sort with the saints who have gone before us. Even then, we neither worship nor sacrifice to them, we simply acknowledge that death is no barrier to the worship of God.
