Today we celebrate All Saints Day. Do you have a favorite saint? If so, who is it? I am hard pressed when I ask myself that question… St Francis, St Teresa of Avila, St Ignatius Loyola, St Juan Diego, St Kateri Tekakwitha, St Dominic… I could go on and on. Also there are those on the way to sainthood, such as Blessed Oscar Romero, Servant of God Isaac Hecker, and so many more.
The saints remind us that God works with what God has made and with what we bring when we show up. God can transform all of us, no matter what. Thanks be to God!
Let’s not forget all of the unknown saints who have no feast day. Today, for me, is the calendar equivalent of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
I completely agree!
I was struck by the comment above and just came across this ‘echo’. https://malcolmguite.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/all-saints-and-all-souls-a-last-beatitude-2/ . . . I do love to refresh my mind if the ‘cloud of witnesses’ at this time of year. Love the header pic!
