All Saints Day ~ Saint Resources

The purpose behind this feast that we know as All Saint's Day is to honor All Martyrs and Saints known and unknown. It is a way to acknowledge those who have given up their lives for their religious beliefs. It is to venerate and not to worship, to remember and celebrate the lives of persons who have since passed.

There are over 6,000 saints with very interesting stories.

St. Catherine of Bologna, pictured to the left, is known as the patron saint of artists.
