The way of perfection

October 31, 2011

Over the last five years, Tony and I spoke many times about Halloween; three instances found their way into the blog.  He once told me that Halloween was the perfect holiday for kids because “they aren’t forced to go to church for that one”.

One Response to “The way of perfection”

  1. Actually, until quite recently, All Saints’ Day, November 1st, was considered by the Catholic Church to be a Holy Day of Obligation. All Souls Day, November 2nd is still a day in which people are encouraged to attend mass to pray for those whose merits are deemed to be less than what would constitute ‘sainthood’. There are also indulgences and forgiveness that can be earned to commemorate those who have passed away.
