"All Saints' Day enriches the faith of all who observe it. When we honor the saints, we actually give glory to God. Pray to the saints and invoke their help and intercession."
-- Unknown Catholic Official
It was originally known as the Feast of All Martyrs in memory of the martyrs in the early Church who died for their faith in Christ. It has evolved into a solemn observance during which the Church remembers all who have died in the faith.
Today...I would like to specifically remember the following....
My dad (Michael G.)
My mom (Dianne J.)
My niece (Clare W.)
My niece (Rachel W.)
My friend (Robbi A.)
Teachers (Sister Diana Hupp, Sister Madeline Carey)
All of our babies lost through miscarriage
May the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
