"But now that you have been freed from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit that you have leads to sanctification, and its end is eternal life.” ~ Romans 6:22
November 1st is the feast of All Saints. The Catholic Church celebrates all canonized and not canonized saints on this day and offers the sacrifice of the mass in thanksgiving to God for their exemplary lives and encourages the laity to work towards attaining Heaven. This day is so important to the Church that it is a holy day of obligation, which means we should all attend mass.
This special feast reminds us of the universal calling to holiness. The catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that:
2013 "All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of Christian life and the perfection of charity." All are called to holiness: "Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." To reach this perfection, the faithful should use the strength dealt out to them by Christ's gift, so that . . . doing the will of the Father in everything, they may wholeheartedly devote themselves to the glory of God and the service of their neighbor. Thus the holiness of the People of God will grow in fruitful abundance, as is clearly shown in the history of the Church through the lives of so many saints.
Love is our primary vocation, and as we learn about the lives of the Saints, we realize that they made the ordinary extraordinary by doing it with God's grace and led by the Holy Spirit, for His Glory. Like Mother Theresa said, "Love until it hurts." We are encouraged to live our lives serving God through loving our neighbor, even if it is difficult. Saints radically loved God, in complete openness to their daily missions. Even though these known and unknown saints have attained eternal life, God has given them the task to intercede for us. Christians can have their personal "army of saint friends" that inspire them and root for them on their pilgrimage to Heaven.
