Who are the saints and what do we celebrate on “All Saints Day?”

who-are-the-saintsIn the video below, Father Robert Barron explains who the saints are and what we celebrate on “All Saints Day.” One thing the saints all have in common is that they have all become the friends of Christ. The saints differ in a wide variety of personalities, styles, backgrounds, and education. They have vivid, memorable, and striking personalities. Saints are not simply there to be our models or heroes, but are there to be our friends and guide us along the path of holiness. When we celebrate “All Saints Day” we celebrate the source of radiance they bring, which is brought on by their burning love for Christ.
