The feast of All Saints is on November 1st. Why do we honor the Saints? It makes no difference to them – it is for us – so that we can be inspired by them, to try to be like them. The saints were not perfect, but they perservered, and we can too!
The feast of all Souls is on November 2nd. There is a tradition in our faith of praying for the dead. We believe that purgatory is a time of purification – to ready us for heaven. We believe that we can help them on that journey toward heaven though praying for them and that is why we pray for the dead, and why we set this day aside.
