Fr. McDonald's catechesis and questions for All Saints

Sunday, November 1, 2009
The Feast of All Saints

He began to teach them saying: "Blessed are the Poor in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven." The beatitudes in today's Gospel mark the beginning of a lengthy discourse delivered by Jesus at the Sermon on the Mount.
Today we have the opportunity to remember all holy men and women of the past and those who walk beside us today -- all those whose faith and deeds were only recognized by their family and friends, and in some cases by God alone.

Some questions for today:

What is a Saint?
Whom do you think of when you think of Saints?
Do you know someone who is:
"poor in spirit"?
"pure in heart"?
merciful?
sorrowing?
honest?
a peacemaker?
suffers for righteousness?
