Sunday of All Saints

May 30, 2010

“We extol you, Apostles, Martyrs, Prophets and all Saints, and we honor your holy memory, as you pray for us to Christ our God.” (Hymn of Praise of the Sunday of All Saints)
By honoring the saints we honor God, for respect shown to them is respect shown to God. The saints did not become saints by their own power – their holiness is the result of God’s grace. All that they are, they owe to God. The Servant of God Metropolitan Andrew Sheptysky said: “The veneration of saints not only does not oppose in any way the worship that is due to God but eminently contributes to it. We honor the saints as servants of God, as our heavenly protectors who intercede for us before God and obtain from Him, for us, the forgiveness of our sins and heavenly grace.”

PARISH APPEAL PETER’S PENCE – In his latest encyclical, Pope Benedict XVI reminds the faithful that “God’s love…gives us the courage to continue seeking and working for the benefit of all” (Caritas in Veritate, no. 78) The Peter’s Pence Collection gives U.S. parishioners a chance to unite in solidarity with the Holy Father, the faithful worldwide, and those most in need of charitable love. The Holy See uses the Collection proceeds to provide emergency assistance and aid to the most disadvantaged around the world. Please be generous in the Collection and, in doing so, cast the love of Christ upon the world. In June our archdiocese will take up the Peter’s Pence Collection, which provides the Holy Father with the assistance he needs to carry out his most important charitable works. The proceeds benefit the most disadvantaged: victims of war, oppression, and disasters. Through your generosity, with Pope Benedict we can cast the love of Christ upon the world.
