Feast Of All Saints: A Holy Day Of Obligation

Beato Angelico, “Christ Glorified in the Court of Heaven”

Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, qui nos ómnium Sanctórum tuórum mérita sub una tribuísti celebritáte venerári: quæsumus; ut desiderátam nobis tuæ propitiatiónis abundántiam, multiplicátis intercessóribus, largiáris.

Almighty and everlasting God, who has enabled us to honour in one solemn Feast the merits of all Thy Saints: we beseech Thee, that, with so many praying for us, Thou wouldst pour forth on us the abundance of Thy mercy for which we long.

Read the rest here on the always beautiful Ars Orandi blog.

Please remember this is a Holy Day of Obligation.


Tomorrow 29 June, Feast Of Ss Peter And Paul, Is A UK Holy Day Of Obligation

Tomorrow is the 29th June, Feast of St. Peter and Paul and holy day of obligation in the UK.

A bit of planning will go a long way in making the attendance as little inconvenient as possible and, therefore, a better savoured spiritual experience. This, besides the fact that a bit of inconvenience should actually be seen as part of the experience.

Perhaps the one or other of our US-American friends would like to profit from the occasion to vote for the reintroduction of the obligation in their country with their feet?
