Today we celebrate the and remember the great multitude of saints, the vast majority of whose names we will never know. Some of them walk among us. They are janitors, parents, nurses, and priests. They live lives of extraordinary holiness and humility in service of God and neighbor. We pray that we might join their number. As Leon Bloy once wrote, “The only real sadness, the only real failure, the only great tragedy in life is not to become a saint.” A song for The Feast of All Saints and Eucharistic Adoration, “From Glory to Glory (We Adore You)” by Jackie Francois and “By His Grace” by Van Morrison here:
