Yep, for all you who love Saints today is bumper day: All Saints. A very happy feast day to you all. In our parish we are adopting Patron Saints for the year. Each parishioner is invited to dip into a lottery to pull out a Saint's name. The exercise proved very popular last year, and many received Saints which resonated with them and their lives. It's a good way of getting to know the Saints and forming a bond with our brothers and sisters in heaven.
If you would like to join us in this spiritual exercise, you can go to this website and receive a patron.
In case you are wondering why I am doing this on the 1st November rather than the 1st January, I think it fits in better with All Saints. Enjoy.
