All Saints Day is the Church’s commemoration of that whole body of saints who number in the thousands.” While the origins of All Saints Day are not specific, in the ’s, various countries had their own celebrations of the saints.   Such is the death of the saints, a death very precious in the sight of God.” Saint Theresa of Avila “Though you recourse to many saints as your intercessors, go to especially to Saint Joseph, for he has great power with God.” Pope Saint Clement I “Follow the saints because those who follow them will become saints.” Author: Alex R. Hey.   For example, Paul writes in 1 Corinthians – 2 To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: 3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (1.   (In the Bible, the word saints means those who are sanctified or set apart as holy, meaning all of God's true followers.) We know from such scriptures as 1 Thessalonians 1 Thessalonians [15] For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain to the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which.

One time, we were celebrating a memorial of a Dominican Saint during the Liturgy of the Hours in our convent in Rome. I was the reader. Our sub-prior was laughing at me because I had an entire library of liturgical books in front of me: 1)The ordinary breviary; 2) the proper of the Order of Preachers; 3) the ordinary lectionary for the Divine office; 4) the antiphonary; 5) the hymnal; and 6) a. Saints are holy people who put God and his will first in their lives, they listen to God and let him work through them. They are models for us.

By remembering and honoring the saints we celebrate what the Holy Spirit has done in their lives. God is praised in and through His saints. 2. The saints are those who, having advanced closer to the goal of theosis (becoming like God in Christ), can help the rest of us through their example .

  This proclamation--that comes in diverse forms and through many persons--is the one and only means through which the Holy Spirit keeps me and all believers in the one true faith. In this way, the communion of saints, into which all believers are gathered, becomes the channel through which the Holy Spirit accomplishes his keeping work.   The Orthodox pray for the departed. The most pressing prayer within the liturgies appointed for this purpose is for God to forgive their sins. We say, “For no one lives and does not sin, for You only are without sin.” This is easily misunderstood, but it goes to the very heart of the mystery of our relationship with God. The same sentiment, interestingly, is offered in the prayers for. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death. Amen. GLORY BE to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. THE HAIL HOLY QUEEN Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To. By Chaplain Mike. In some traditions, All Saints’ Day was celebrated on Nov. 1, while others will honor the saints this coming Sunday, the first in November.
