All Saints Day

For Catholics (and perhaps others?), today, 1 November, is All Saints Day. Now, we do not worship saints, but we do ask them to pray for us, just as we ask other people to pray for us.

I came across this wonderful website, Catholic Fire, and Jean Marie, whose blog it is, has written several a post about All Saints Day.

First, Catholic Fire: Prayers for All Saints' Day.

Then, Catholic Online: Eucharist unites saints, pilgrims, pope says on All Saints Day.
