It is not our feast day, folks!

Again, I see on the Net comments from priests who claim November 1st is the feast of the Church Militant, as these priests call all Catholics in the pews "saints".

Not so.

It is not our feast day, but the feast day of the Church Triumphant, those saints who have won the crown of blessedness in heaven.

Those who are canonized saints are honored today, as well as those who we do not know who are saints in heaven.

If a person is living and thinks that he or she is a saint, assuredly, that person is not.

Humility and self-abnegation mark the saints.

Let us honor the real saints today, our models of perfection.
