All Saints’ Day, also known as All Hallows’ Day, Hallowmas,[better source needed] the Feast of All Saints, or Solemnity of All Saints, is a Christiansolemnity celebrated in honour of all the saints, known and unknown. Its intent is to celebrate all the saints, including those who do not, or are no longer, celebrated individually, either because the number of saints has become so great or because they were celebrated in groups, after suffering martyrdom collectively. The feast may have started in the Christian community in Antioch. Its date, 1 November, was set by Pope Gregory III and extended to the whole church by Pope Gregory IV.
The saints have no need of honour from us; neither does our devotion add the slightest thing to what is theirs. Clearly, if we venerate their memory, it serves us, not them. But I tell you, when I think of them, I feel myself inflamed by a tremendous yearning.From a sermon of St Bernard of Clairvaux
DARK CLOUDS OVER A CLOSED WORLD
LACKING A PLAN FOR EVERYONE
Conflict and fear
25. War, terrorist attacks, racial or religious persecution, and many other affronts to human dignity are judged differently, depending on how convenient it proves for certain, primarily economic, interests. What is true as long as it is convenient for someone in power stops being true once it becomes inconvenient. These situations of violence, sad to say, “have become so common as to constitute a real ‘third world war’ fought piecemeal”.
The focus must always…always…remain on Jesus.Bishop Patrick J. Zurek
socialist-catholics in fear conveniently number themselves among the saints because they know they are being insulted and persecuted falsely in archbishop vigano’s letter for standing against “affronts to human dignity” based on race…
maga-catholics in fear conveniently number themselves among the saints because they know archbishop vigano’s letter told our president that they were being insulted and persecuted for standing against “affronts to human dignity” based on religion…
comfortable catholics in fear conveniently number themselves among the saints because they know they are not being insulted or persecuted for anything since everybody likes and admires their “human dignity”…
Catholics in LOVE welcome the inconveniences of standing with Pope Francis and the Magesterium against all “affronts to human dignity” because they long to see the LORD’s face and it is by way of insults and persecution that we know HIM!!!
