Happy Halloween!

You didn’t think I’d let Halloween go by without acknowledging it, did you? Or not pull out my ever-trustworthy Catholic Field Guide to the Undead? Or post “Masquerade” from The Phantom of the Opera?

(I apologize that it’s the short version, but the longer version was taken down. Way to be killjoys, NBC).

As much fun as it is to revel in the spooktacular for Halloween, it’s important to remember that it is a Catholic feast–All Hallows’ Eve, the day before All Saints’ Day (which is a Holy Day of Obligation, so if you’re Catholic, get to Mass). To help illustrate this point a little more, I’ve found this video by Catholic theologian Dr. Taylor Marshall on the Catholic elements in the novel Dracula.

And speaking of Dracula…this was such an awesome scene.

Happy Halloween!
