Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! I am calling you to be prayer in this time of grace. You all have problems, afflictions, sufferings and lack of peace. May saints be models to you and an encouragement for holiness; God will be near you and you will be renewed in seeking through your personal conversion. Faith will be hope to you and joy will begin to reign in your hearts. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (October 25, 2017)
Tonight in many of our communities children will participate in the celebration of Halloween. It is a secular tradition, in which costumes are used to portray all sorts of scary and eerie characters. The object of the evening parade is to get candy from your neighbors. But I, for one, remember having bad dreams about Halloween for many years as a child. It was not a great experience for me.
That is why I want to share a video with you about a tradition that was started by a community in England, Cor et Lumen Christi. This community has found a beautiful way to change the eerie tradition of Halloween into a beautiful Night of Light and fun.
Here is the video! Enjoy!
We are called to the Light!! Let the saints be models to us and an encouragement to holiness and to fun!!
