A Message from Mr. Clagnaz...
May the blessing of the saints be with you on All Saints' Day and everyday!
This is a great time of year to think about our saints. The Feast Day of one of the world's favorite saints, Saint Francis of Assisi, is celebrated on October 4. He is known as the patron saint of animals and the environment, he founded three religious orders, and created the Nativity Scene. To this day we carry on the tradition of blessing animals on his Feast Day. His love of all of God's creation flows from his great love and devotion to Jesus. One reason that our Pope chose Francis as his papal name is his devotion to St. Francis, and his concern for the well being of the poor.
On November 1 we celebrate the Feast of All Saints. It is a day the Church celebrates all the people who have died and are now with God in heaven. We do not know the names of all the saints. Everyone who has lived and died in Jesus' love is a saint - even members of our family, our friends, and our neighbors! We can all live like saints even while we are still living on earth - if we try to love Jesus and share his love with others.
Let's think of ways that we can live live a saint at home, in school, or in our neighborhood.
