God’s Holiness has Touched our Lives

Saints are our Brother and Sisters who Received the Light of God

“The Solemnity of All Saints is “our” feast, not because we are good but because God’s holiness has touched our life,” Pope Francis said in his address before the Angelus in St. Peter’s Square on November 1, 2017, The Feast of All Saints.

“The Saints aren’t perfect models, but persons run through by God…We can compare them to the windows of churches, which let the light enter in different shades of colors,” the Holy Father proclaimed. “The Saints are our brothers and sisters who received the light of God in their heart and transmitted it to the world, each one according to his own ‘shade.’ However, they were all transparent; they struggled to remove the stains and the darkness of sin, so as to have God’s kindly light pass through. This is the purpose of life:  to have the light of God pass through, and also the purpose of our life.”
