This day is holy indeed! It brings us closer to the gates of heaven as we give thanks for all those who have made it to Jerusalem the Golden. It brings home to us that special fruit that comes from the gift of faith: our call to holiness.
Today we remember the lives and witness of all the saints, known and unknown. We honour those who throughout history have led exemplary lives of humility, sacrifice, and love.
During Mass that veil that divides us from them is drawn wide open and we are drawn in to taste and see the joys of the heavenly city.
