Befriend the Saints and Be Prepared
In this time of the New Evangelization, the saints are a key to spiritual growth. If we celebrate their feast days, introduce them to our friends here, introduce them to people who have never heard of them - well, they'd start whispering the same things they whisper to you and me. And they always point to the Lord.
When we celebrate their union with God, when we celebrate God's intense desire for total union with us, won't we bring a little more joy, hope, and peace into this struggling world? Into our struggling hearts? And how about a little more partying? Heaven is described as a feast! Do people know that? Do they realize that Hell is not the location of the party? Let's go out and celebrate the feast days of the saints, to bring a bit of the feast of Heaven to Earth!
