Bishop Robert Barron on All Saints Day

A Bishop Robert Barron video

All Saints Day emphasises the universality of the call to sanctity. If you isolate a given saint — Francis of Assisi, Thomas Aquinas — they can appear to be so far beyond us. But All Saints Day emphasises not only the canonised saints but also all the ordinary people, forgotten to history, who God has remembered as saintly. And it reminds us that being a saint is the ordinary goal of Christian life. Everything in the Church — preaching, Scripture, sacraments, the Eucharist, everything — is meant to lead to the place where we become saints.
