Saint for the Day - November 1 - All-Saints
The Church pays, day by
day, a special veneration to some one of the holy
men and women who have helped to establish it by
their blood, develop it by their labors, or edify it
by their virtues. But, in addition to those whom the
Church honors by special designation, or has
inscribed in her calendar, how many martyrs are
there whose names are not recorded! How many humble
virgins and holy penitents! How many just and holy
anchorites or young children snatched away in their
innocence! How many Catholics who have died in
grace, whose merits are known only to God, and who
are themselves known only in heaven!
Now should we forget those who remember us in their
intercessions? Besides, are they not our brethren,
our ancestors, friends, and fellow-Catholics, with
whom we have lived in daily companionship—in other
words, our own family? Yea, it is one family; and
our place is marked out in this home of eternal
light and eternal love.
