At the school mass today the kindergarten children all dressed up as Saints in honor of All Saints Day which is celebrated on November 1. The communion meditation song was the Litany of the Saints. As the children sang, my heart leaped with joy over all my "friends", the Saints, who I have gotten to know over the last several years. The Litany of Saints is sung at priestly ordinations when the priest elect lays prostrate before his bishop. I prayed to all the saints that one of my four sons some day would be a priest of Jesus Christ.
