All Saints Day 2018
Our chapel could be named for All Saints Day because we have the Beatitudes from the Gospel on the walls along with statues of the saints, especially those who were sinners. This is a reminder of the origin of this feast in transferring relics to St. Mary of the Martyrs in Rome, the previously pagan temple of the Pantheon. Today is a great celebration in heaven as all who have lived ordinary lives in extraordinary supernatural ways are honored. We are called to imitate them and to join them one day.
