Next week is a week that has much meaning and remembrance in our faith.
We look forward to Halloween, Dia de Los Muertos, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day.
Here is a little insight of these celebrations in our Catholic faith:
Halloween, traditionally known as All Hallows' Eve, carries a profound significance in the Catholic calendar. It falls on the evening before All Saints' Day, a day dedicated to honoring all the saints, known and unknown, who have lived virtuous lives and now rest in God's presence. Halloween, while often associated with costumes and spooky decorations, can serve as a reminder of the spiritual battle between good and evil that is an integral part of Catholic faith. It's an opportunity for Catholics to reflect on the triumph of light over darkness, as they anticipate the celebration of All Saints' Day. Just as costumes can temporarily conceal our true selves, All Saints' Day reminds us that, through faith and good deeds, we can strive to become saints and ultimately reveal our inner divine nature. Halloween, when seen through a Catholic lens, is not merely a secular holiday but a time to prepare our hearts and souls for the communion of saints, seeking inspiration from their lives to walk the path of holiness in our own unique ways.
