“I have always been drawn to the Feast of All Saints. It is a time to remember with gratitude all those persons whose goodness has inspired me in my beliefs and given me courage to act on what I believe.It is a day to acknowledge that these holy men and women have helped me find my own potentials for goodness.

As we celebrate this feast on November 1, we gather to commemorate not just martyrs or people we might tend to put on spiritual pedestals, but all those people who have drawn us to God because of who they were and how they lived.

All Saint’s Day is an excellent opportunity for us to be re-inspired by their virtuos lives and to cherish the union we have with them.”
