Feast of All Saints {November 1}

A Blessed All Saints' Day to you!
Ecstasy of Saint Teresa
Sculpted by Bernini (1647-1652)

Every day when I pray the Apostles Creed, I say:
I believe in the communion of saints~

On this day (today) we celebrate all of our brothers and sisters in heaven, which is cause for a great feast day!  No wonder the Church requires our attendance at Mass today.

Our recent family pilgrimage to Italy included visits to the burial places of so many courageous Christians; martyrs, apostles, virgins, heroes.  May our prayers be joined with theirs on this holy day and every day.

All holy men and women,
Pray for us!
