Happy All Saints Day

Everyone knows October 31st is Halloween. Most people especially most children celebrated by dressing up in funny and scary costumes and going door-to-door collecting candies from anybody who'll give them some. But what very few people actually stop to realize is that Halloween actually means All Hallows Eve. That's because the following day Is All Hallows day. That is the day in the Catholic calendar where we celebrate all the saints who are in heaven. This does not just include Saints who are officially named like Saint Teresa of Avila or st. Padre Pio or st. Francis of Assisi. This of course also includes anybody who is in heaven. Nobody currently knows exactly how many people are in heaven. But November 1st is designated as the official day of the year where Catholics around the world celebrate and ask for the prayers of these holy people in heaven who are very close to God. This year let's not just celebrate All Hallows Eve let's also celebrate All Saints Day which is today November 1st 2016.
