Holy Day of Obligation - All Saints Day

Today is a Holy Day of Obligation.

We don't have many of these, now a days, that fall during the weekday since most have been moved to the nearest Sunday.

I'll be going to mass at lunch time at a local parish near work in Manhattan Beach.

Here's an article to start the day with "The Harrowing of Hell".

It gives a little background on last nights festivities and it's tie in with today's holy day.

All Saints Day & All Souls Day (which is tomorrow) emphasizes the catholic teachings on The Communion Of Saints.

Here's some links:
All Saints Day
All Souls' Day
The Communion of Saints
Praying to the Saints
The Intercession of the Saints

...I can sense the holidays fast approaching.
