First, why are we celebrating this feast day? The saints remind us that we are to be like them while we are living on
this earth. In the words of St. Paul of the Cross, "[a living
saint] is God center, apostolic, prayerful person, totally dedicated to God, detached oneself from the world, things and
himself." Are you a living saint?
Second, why is it important to know our baptismal and confirmation saint's names? Normally, many of us kept them
the same. The reason why we need to know and study our
saint's names are because they have the blue print on how to
achieve heaven and teach us how to become a saint. Do you
know anything about your saints and why they are saints?
Do you know your blue print?
Please call the church office to schedule mass intentions.
Diocese policy suggests an offering of $10 or more per mass

A day to commemorate all saints, those known and unknown,
has been celebrated at various times of the Church year since
the fourth century. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III dedicated a chapel in St. Peter’s Basilica to “all the saints.” The day
of this dedication was November 1. We have commemorated
all saints on this day ever since.
Listen to today’s Beatitudes, looking carefully at your own life.
How do you measure up to the ideals put forth by our Lord? As
we open our hearts to the word of God, let us remember the
saints who have gone before us and pray that one day we may
embody the Beatitudes and come to be counted among those
who enjoy God’s presence in heaven.

Thanksgiving for the Saints
We thank you, God, for the saints of all ages, for those who in
times of darkness kept the lamp of faith burning, for the great
souls who saw visions of larger truths and dared to declare
them, for the multitude of quiet, gracious souls whose presence
purified and sanctified the world; and for those known and
loved by us, who have passed from this earthly fellowship into
the fuller life with you. Accept this, our thanksgiving, through
Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever. Amen.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Eight hundred years ago, the church’s practice of penance underwent major revision as theologians, called scholastics, reflected on the practice of their day. By then, penance was normally a very secret rite, celebrated completely
apart from the community. Public penance had mostly disappeared behind the walls of monasteries and the cloister
grills of convents. The scholastics trimmed penance down
to bare essentials, even sweeping aside age‑old traditions
like a laying on of hands and prayers of absolution. All that
was left was the confessor’s simple statement, “Ego te absolvo,” “I absolve you.”
In 1614 a new ritual book tried to make penance more
public and solemn. It suggested, but did not require, that
the priest wear a surplice and stole, and hear the confession
in a confessional. For the first time, we have the directive
that the priest be separated from the penitent by a screen, a
rule that some bishops applied very strictly. By the 1940s,
large numbers of Catholics availed themselves of the sacrament of confession every Saturday, and most people
thought confession was a prerequisite for Communion. In
some urban parish churches, confessionals were staffed,
usually by the junior priest, for several hours every day,
even during the celebration of Mass. It is remarkable how
quickly things changed, but as we have seen, the system
has collapsed before and what often comes next is an impulse of the Spirit, new life, and a fresh start.

The Gold Award Project of Senior Girl Scout Dana Probst
he Little Free Library is for everyone in the community.
The purpose of the library is to help improve the literacy rate in Baldwin County by making books easily
available. Literacy can beak the cycle of poverty, one
reader at a time.
The way the Little Free Library works is, if someone
sees a book they like, they can take it with them. Or,
if they are waiting in line at the food pantry, they can
sit down and read a book. If they would like to, they
can bring the book(s) back and get a new one or they
can keep the book and get a new one!

Dare to be Happy
WE LONG TO SEE GOD’S FACE
Date to be happy-don’t shy away,
Reach out and capture the joy of Today!
“Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.” This
antiphon for today’s responsorial psalm offers the focus for today’s readings. As we on earth celebrate the triumph of all the
saints—the ones officially canonized by the Church, and the
countless others who have also reached heaven—we add nothing
to their glory. But we give ourselves reason to hope. We too long
to see the face of God and believe that we can one day be counted
among those whose robes, as John tells us in the book of Revelation, are washed “white in the blood of the Lamb.”
Life is for Living! Give it a try;
Open y9ur heart to that sun in the sky.
Dare to be loving, and trusting, and true:
Treasure the hours with those dear to you,
Dare to be kind, it’s more fun than you know;
Give joy to others, and watch your own grow.
Dare to admit all your blessings, and then
Every day count them all over again.
Dare to be happy, don’t be afraid,
This is the day which the Lord hath made!
The passage from John’s First Letter offers further assurance:
we are God’s children who will one day see God. But today’s Gospel pulls us past longing and reassurance into action. Jesus clearly
tells us what we must do to be counted among the saints. We must
be poor in spirit, hungry for holiness, merciful, single-hearted, and
peacemakers! Then we too will see the face of God.
