On Thursday of this week, Catholics celebrate the Feast of All Saints remembering the many people who have lived good lives in this world under different and challenging times and circumstances. They accepted the invitation to follow Christ and live his value system. We are reminded that each of us is invited to do the same, to become saints responding to the universal call to holiness of Vatican II.
