A Blessed All Saints' Day to you!
Ecstasy of Saint Teresa

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!
