All Saints Day

   We can pay no greater honor to the Saints than by offering up to God in their name the Blood of Jesus. The efficacy of their past merits and present prayers is greatly increased when offered to God in close association with the merits and prayers of Our Lord. Therefore the Church commemorates on this day all the Saints in heaven without exception, and thus honors also those who are unknown and who have no public recognition in the liturgy.

FEAST OF ALL SAINTS

November 1

DOUBLE, FIRST CLASS / WHITE
This is the great family feast of the Mystical Body in its final triumph. The unnumbered and nameless multitude of saints, "out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues," are our brothers and sisters in Christ at home with our Redeemer-Brother. Their sainthood is the fulfillment of living the eight Beatitudes. They are the great Christian heroes. "Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love Him" (I Cor. 2:9).

    "The glorious company of the apostles praise Thee.
    The goodly fellowship of the prophets praise Thee.
    The white-robed army of martyrs praise Thee.
    All Thy saints and elect with one voice do acknowledge Thee,
    O Blessed Trinity, one God!"

    ~ Feast of All Saints (November 1), Antiphon at Lauds. from the Te Deum
