November 1st is All Saints Day. It is a holy day of obligation in the Catholic Church and one of my favorite feast days.
On this All Saints Day, I went to Mass early and walked home under a gray sky, just before it rained.
I like walking home from Mass – even though the hill can be challenging – because it gives me a chance to think about my confession, if I made one, and anything else I might want to remember.
These are the things I want to remember from today’s service:
- All Saints Day gives us an opportunity to honor saints who may not be honored otherwise.
- Veneration of the saints is one of the things that sets us apart as Catholics.
- Thanks to our Catholic Faith, we are given reason to hope that we may someday be among them.
