All Saints

Today - 1 November is All Saints Day.  The reason that the day before is called Halloween is to do with it being the Eve (preceding day) of the Hallowed Day, much like December 24 is the Eve of Christmas.

In the church, many places will celebrate the Feast of All Saints on Sunday, when we remember with thanksgiving those who have gone before us to joint the heavenly throng during the past year.  They are no longer part of the church militant (fighting it out with sin, death and the devil here on earth), but part of the church triumphant (having conquered sin, death and the devil).

Educate all your trick-or-treating friends!
