All Saints

Today is the feast of All Saints, and a day of obligation here in the United Kingdom and, I believe, pretty much everywhere else.

A beautiful way to stay near to those who have made it before us, and whose prayers we need.

You do much if you manage to inform one of the certainly many uninterested or tepid Catholics among your colleagues that today is a feast day and a day of obligation, and you will go to Mass. They will probably not follow your example, but it is another small work of (re)-evangelisation anyway.

Today there is no obligation of abstaining from meat, either. A feast day is not a day for penance.

I do not know you, but I am in need of prayers. I will profit of this occasion with enthusiasm. 

I am sure my readers also read Rorate Caeli, and they have a beautiful post about the indulgences linked to the week that begins today.

Just imagine: to be among those who have made it, and are now enjoying Beatific Vision, forever. Infinitely better than being an Emperor, and within reach of all of us.

  1. On my crummy blog I related how at the Lil’ Licit Liturgy today the Priest told us that not only Catholics are Saints but others are as well, such as Billy Graham and Martin Luther King Jr but especially Billy Graham who will have a seat up high in Heaven near Our Lord.

    And our Inertia Into Indifferentism Intensifies and still invisibilium within the Hierarchy is that Prelate who embodies Tradition in an amount sufficient to be a force that could be applied against our Inertia into Indifferentism.

    Do you realise how good a Guinness can taste early in the morning?

  2. Happy Feast Day to all.
    I read the other blog you mentioned about gaining indulgences …thanks be to GOD!
    I am to remember the holy souls in Purgatory and also I want to gain as many indulgences for them and for others and of course me too …I need all the help and prayers I can get .
    Thanks be to God for Holy Confession and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass …I will remember you Mundabor in my prayers at the Solemn High Mass for this feast day and all the others who pass this way! May the Communion of Saints , all the Saints known and unknown pray for each of us and help us to grow in holiness and become Saints ! To God be the Glory!
