November 1st, Solemnity of All Saints
is a Holy Day of Obligation
St. Luke All Saints’ Day Mass times: 8:30a.m. & 5:30p.m.
The Church celebrates all the saints: canonized or beatified, and the multitude of those who are in heaven enjoying the beatific vision that are only known to God. We all have this “universal call to holiness.” We must follow in Christ’s footsteps and conform ourselves to His image seeking the will of the Father in all things. We must devote ourselves with all our being to the glory of God and the service of our neighbor. In this way, the holiness of the people of God will grow into an abundant harvest of good, as is shown by the life of saints in Church history” (Lumen Gentium, 40).
“For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone.” (Ephesians 2:18-20)
