Happy All Saints Day! 

October 31, 2022

Happy All Saints Day! 

 

Today’s celebration reminds us of several truths.  First, we are untied to one another through the gift of baptism even more powerfully that we are to one another by kin or affection.  Two, the bond of baptism is everlasting, but the bonds of this world’s affection unravel at death.  Thirdly, baptism unites us together as one and with one another to Christ Jesus.  And fourth, the bond of baptism grows stronger and stronger within us when we pray, when we worship, when we study the holy scriptures and the inspired works of the saints and the teaching of the Church.  We are strengthened in our baptismal resolve when we turn away from self and towards others in need.  Every act and thought of ours has eternal consequences.  Whenever we do the good and avoid evil, we are united more firmly to Jesus and the power of his cross and resurrection.  The more we turn to him, the more we become like him, and the more we become like him the more we become saints—our true and highest calling! 

 

Today, we not only celebrate the saints, and invoke their intercession, we resolve to become saints ourselves. 

 

“Not to be a saint—that is the greatest tragedy that can befall you.  You fall, but it is never too late to start again.  You were made to be a saint.” 

 

Please join us for the celebration of All Saints Day Masses in the Saint Thomas Activity Center at 9:00 am and 7 pm.
