After All Hallows’ Eve comes All Hallows’ (Saints’) Day, the day when Catholics get to celebrate all of the saints in Heaven, whether their names are known or not. This is one of my favorite feast days because of its wide scope. We commemorate all of the saints for all of the sacrifices they made, and we ask for their intercession on our behalf so we can make it to Heaven ourselves.
Tomorrow, November 2, is technically All Souls’ Day, but its observance is transferred to November 3 this year because Canon Law forbids Requiem Masses from being offered on a Sunday. So my usual All Souls’ post will be waiting until Monday. In the meantime, keep an eye out for my reaction/review to the first half of Doctor Who‘s two-part finale, “Dark Water”.
