Happy All Saints (today) and All Souls (tomorrow)! On November 1 and 2, the Church celebrates these feasts, remembering the saints in heaven and all the faithful departed.
What are the origins of these feast days? Find out here!
Take a moment today to celebrate the lives of the saints, by learning about them and praying to them. Perhaps you can pick a few saints to focus on with your family today. Then, tomorrow, make sure to take time to pray for your relatives and friends who have passed away and for all the souls in Purgatory.
Check out our Catholics Come Home Leadership team, made up of our Officers, Theological Advisory Board, and Business Advisory Board. Perhaps you may know some of them from your diocese or from books you’ve read. These wonderful men and women have helped guide CCH and allow the work of the Holy Spirit to flourish, so that many more Catholics have joined our Catholic Family over the years. Please offer a prayer for them today!
Randy Hain’s second book is a thought-provoking, lesson-filled road map for navigating our faith journeys as Catholics. He considers conversion, faith, prayer, peace, parenthood, the Blessed Mother, the search for Truth, authenticity, and more from a humble and uniquely integrated Catholic life perspective. “We are not able to tackle everything at once, so let’s make it simple and focus on what we can do. We need to work on ourselves and pursue lives of personal holiness, never forgetting we are made for Heaven and not this world”…Read more at Amazon.com.
Hain’s newest book is being sold at a fantastic discount during the pre-order period (43% off retail). The book is officially available from Liguori Publications around November 15th and would make a great Christmas gift and an excellent companion for this Year of Faith!
“The best ever explanation of the Catholic doctrine of the communion of saints written for a popular audience. Patrick Madrid explains in a clear, easy-to-follow style why Catholics pray to and honor Mary and the saints. Using the Bible and the testimony of the early Church Fathers, he provides a concise overview of the biblical and historical foundations of this often misunderstood Catholic doctrine. He also walks you through the standard anti-Catholic arguments against praying to Mary and the saints and demonstrates from the Bible why these arguments are themselves unbiblical.”
