November's Reminder--the Call to Holiness  

November is dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory. In a special way, during the month we remember to pray for those who are not yet cleansed of all of temporal effects of sin. They need our prayers in order to be purified and to enter into the glory of Heaven.

The month, however, begins with the feast day of All Saints. On that feast day, we are reminded of our calling in life--to be a saint. Every single person that God creates is called to be a saint and to live with Him forever and ever. We might get there via Purgatory, but nonetheless, we are called to live eternally with the Holy Trinity.

We should take comfort that, although it can seem very difficult at times, God is with us on every step of our journey. He wants us to be with Him. He created us to be with Him. He will help us be with Him. On All Saints, we can remember that all of these saints from every different time, place, and station of life, with God's grace, have been welcomed into Heaven. We, too, can cooperate with God's grace in order to receive His awesome gift of eternal life.

All you saints, pray for us!
