November 1 celebrating All Saints. The great saints we all know, and those living eternal life
because of their holiness lived quietly and not necessarily formally canonized; parents,
teachers, friends, all interceding for us at the throne of God. Remember we have an obligation
to attend Mass on that day.
November 2 is All Souls Day, our own feast where we pray for souls preparing for heaven, those
suffering and all desiring to live more Christlike lives so as to be worthy of heaven.
Thanksgiving, although a secular holiday, is a reflection of our whole faith life. Our faith,
worship and Christian way of life is centered in “thanksgiving.” Our Eucharist is itself a sacrifice,
a meal of Thanksgiving. I pray you have loved ones to be with on this beautiful, grace filled day.
May the whole of November be a blessing to you and all your loved ones.
May God bless us and may Mary keep us always in His love!
