November 1 All Saints Day
Participate in an All Saints Day Party! (Or have one yourself.) I think we learn the most about the saints when my children choose which saint they want to be for All Saints Day.
Something to Eat:
A great dessert! Your choice. It is a feast day, after all. There are traditional foods that are for All Souls Day that some folks eat on this day.I will mention those for All Soul’s Day.
Something to Do:
If I get to a Catholic bookstore, I will purchase a new Saint Book for our family library.There are so many great ones out there.I collect all of our saint books in a basket and put them in our family room around this time.
Discuss these with your family:
Whose feast do we celebrate on All Saint’s Day?
Do you have to be famous to be a saint?
Do you really think you are able to become a saint or is it just reserved for a few privileged folks?
Something to Pray: Litany of All Saints
(It is long—but use that as a reminder of really how many saints there are in heaven—and this doesn’t even scratch the surface.)
I've printed it out in the PDF version of this. If you print that out you will have a copy to use at your dinner table. You can also find it here:
