HAPPY ALL SAINTS DAY!!!

 

 Happy All Saints Day!  

Today is the day we celebrate all those who paved the path to the Kingdom of Heaven for us.  Yes all of us who try our best to do His will each and every day of our lives. This is our chance to honor the lives and lesson’s they taught us through their actions.  November first is for all those who may be an anonymous to most but essential to all of us who desire eternal life.

Venerable Fulton Sheen once (or perhaps more than once!) said that saints should be written about to look more like the normal people that they were, instead of people who were so holy that we could not imitate them. We can find hope and encouragement in examples of individuals from every state of life, with every possible temperament, personality, challenge, shortcoming, you name it!

Speaking of  a person, a priest for that matter, who without a doubt, upheld every saintly quality while remaining a very humble and selfless person and clergyman.  We need to pray for his beatification as his example is one we all could benefit from following. Of course I am speaking about the great Father John Harvey.  Father Harvey pray for us!

Below is a short video from the great man and outstanding priest!
