All Saints Day 诸圣日

Today is All Saints Day, a day of obligation. All Catholics are to attend Mass today to remember and honor all the saints, known and unknown.

There are thousands and thousands of early Christians martyrs, the majority of whose names are known only to God. Throughout the history of the Church there have been countless others who really are saints, who are with God in heaven, even if their names are not on the list of canonized saints.

we celebrate these saints of the Lord, and ask for their prayers and intercessions in the belief of the Communion of Saints.

".....These are the people who have been through the great persecution, and they have washed their robes white again in the blood of the Lamb" (Rev 7:14)

Today, there are many Christians being persecuted in many regions of the world,such as India, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, China and Vietnam. They suffered and died because of their belief in Christ.Let us pray to the saints in heaven to protect those who are under persecution, and may the lives of the saints be the shining path of courage and perseverance for them to bear their sufferings in hope.

I asked the intercession of saints for the Grace of perseverance in our faith for all members of my family.




“。。这些人是在大灾难中来的,他们曾在羔羊的血中洗净了自己的衣裳,使衣裳雪白” (默7:14)
