November is one of my favorite months of the year. The leaves have changed by now into beautiful colors, Thanksgiving is celebrated with family and friends around the table and it is the month that Screen Shot 2018-11-14 at 14.52.50begins with my favorite feast day, All Saints Day! On Nov. 1 the church set aside a holy day to celebrate the saints in heaven. This day is also one of the six days which are obligations for Catholics to attend Mass, but rather than looking at it as another day which you have to juggle your personal schedule to attend Mass, we should look at it as a day to celebrate some of our closest friends. It is a Holy Day of “opportunity” for grace rather than (another) “obligation” in our lives.
