THE SAINTS ARE COMING!

In celebration of All Saints Day, the Sunday School children of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish presented a brief “Parade of Saints” who have made it to heaven.  It was presented worthily to divert the idea of “Halloween” though in rituals are rooted in pagan practice centered on death and the coming of evil spirits.

Today most Christians follow that pagan festival decorating their homes with morbid images and dressing themselves like demons, devils, witches, vampires, zombies, ghost and other spooky characters.

Contrary, All Saints Day is the festival par excellence.  Catholics honor, cherish, and pray for the intercession of canonized saints and celebrate the communion of saints – all the baptized in heaven, purgatory and on earth remain connected and are one part of the one Body of Christ.  It is a day of awakening in all community members hope and joy in their solidarity with the friends of God and prophets of all ages.
