Weekly Letter From the Pastor Tuesday, November 1, is the Solemnity of All Saints. On this day we remember all the Holy Men and Women who have gone before us. This day also serves to remind us that being a saint is the fundamental calling, vocation of each of us. People will sometimes say to me, "I am no saint". My standard response to that is "I hope you are". Ultimately there are only two options: 1. I am a saint and with God forever in heaven or 2. I am apart from God forever in hell. Of course when people say, "I am no saint" what they mean is "I am not perfect". None of the saints was perfect either. Part of the value of celebrating All Saints Day stems from the encouragement of knowing that other imperfect, sinful women and men became holy. Let me also mention that we speak of the "Communion of Saints", that is the union of all God's holy people whether living or dead. On November 1 we especially remember those saints who are already sharing eternal life with God in heaven. On November 2, we remember those saints who are completing their journey of becoming holy in purgatory. Because November is particularly connected with praying for the dead our Parish Book of the Names of the Dead will be in church throughout November. At Holy Family it will be near the holy water container. At St. Paul it will be next to the processional cross and candles. I encourage you to write the names of the faithful departed whose names are not already in the book in it. Throughout November we will pray especially for these people. Finally, because there will be a Vigil Mass for All Saints at Holy Family at 6 p.m. there will not be a Mass at St. Paul on Monday, October 31. The other Masses for All Saints will be at 6:30 a.m. at Holy Family and at 12:15 and 7 p.m. at St. Paul.
