On November 1st, we, Roman Catholics celebrate the Feast of All Saints. Who are the saints and why do we celebrate them?
The saints are not people different from us. In all times there have been saints of different ages, gender and ethnicities. Some were tall or short, some were rich and some poor. Some lived a life away from God, until they encountered Jesus, and then their lives changed and they followed him. Others followed the Lord all their lives.
