Solemnity of All Saints

The three states of the Church. "When the Lord comes in glory, and all his angels with him, death will be no more and all things will be subject to him. But at the present time some of his disciples are pilgrims on earth. Others have died and are being purified, while still others are in glory, contemplating 'in full light, God himself triune and one, exactly as he is

CCC 954

All Saints' Day
November 1

All Saints’ Day or Solemnity of All Saints is a day where the church celebrates the church triumphant, all those who have lived a life of virtue, purity, and self-sacrifice which has attained for them sainthood and are living in God’s presence and interceding for us. 

...looking at the shining example of the Saints to reawaken within us the great longing to be like them; happy to live near God, in his light, in the great family of God's friends. Being a Saint means living close to God, to live in his family.
