Two Feast Days in a row–today is All Saints Day. I did not make it to mass today. I look forward to All Soul’s Day when I can remember that great cloud of witnesses that go before me. I should keep this short and go read a bit of a saint’s biography yet tonight. When I first came back from my pilgrimage I was more diligent about this but now I have fallen into disarray. I hardly remember to do the daily readings right now for some reason. Sad! Perhaps this Feast Day is a gentle reminder to get back on track.
Do you spend much time thinking about the saints? Do you have favourite saints? What is it that you learn from them? How do they strengthen your journey? What is it about their lives that points you towards God?
