AllSaints2011(small)

“Today, by your gift we celebrate the festival of your city, the heavenly Jerusalem, our mother, where the great array of our brothers and sisters already gives you eternal praise. Towards her, we eagerly hasten as pilgrims advancing by faith, rejoicing in the glory bestowed upon those exulted members of the Church through whom you give us, in our frailty, both strength and good example. And so we glorify you with the multitude of Saints and Angles.”

(Preface of the Mass of All Saints)
