Solemnity of All SaintsNovember 1, 2015
WITNESSES OF TODAY
GK Chesterton wrote that the saints are the ones who exaggerate what the world has forgotten. Though many believe them to be nearly flawless, their only consistent perfection lies in their determination to begin again – day after day without worrying about the failures of yesterday or the obstacles of the next.
There are literally thousands of saints named by the church, but the scriptures tell us that there are millions of them in the heavens. There are those we know by name because the church highlights their lives as examples of discipleship and selflessness; and there are those we know by their face and their touch because WE highlight them for the same reason.
