Marking the Solemnity of All Saints, Pope Benedict XVI greeted
pilgrims gathered for the mid-day Angelus prayer in St. Peter's Square.
The Pope noted that Solemnity of All Saints offers an ideal occasion to
look beyond the horizon of earthly matters to the dimensions of God,
eternity and holiness. He recalled that the day's liturgy reminds us of
the Christian vocation to holiness. Speaking in English to those
gathered, he said: "I am pleased to wish all of you a happy All Saints
Day! This wonderful feast, along with tomorrow’s commemoration of the
faithful departed, speaks to us of the beauty of our faith and of the
joy that awaits us in heaven with our loved ones who have fallen asleep
in Christ. Let us therefore pray earnestly that we may all be joyfully
united one day in the Father’s house. God bless you all!"
