Why All Saints?
Honoring the Saints is good Holy Fun!
If we look at the history of the Church, we will find that all through the centuries the Church has taken secular feasts and tried to "sanctify" or "Christianize" them.
The Church has the mindset of "How can this be turned into good, with the focus on the one true God and His Church?" Since All Saints and All Souls feasts are together, we can shift the secular focus of Halloween to holy focus on the Communion of Saints in action. We combine honoring the saints in heaven, remembering our loved ones and then directing the destiny of our own souls by prayer and actions. Through this we see the Mystical Body all in action.
Catholic Family Challenge every October: Pray the Rosary as a family. Learn about a new Saint. Make a costume in your chosen Saints honor. Try to emulate your chosen Saint and ask for his or her intercession throughout the year.
