All Saints Day

“A saint is one who makes goodness attractive.

- Laurence Housman
(18 July 1865 - 20 Feb 1959)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's theme calls for gloomy weather, and we have it here in Fayetteville. It's dropping, not misting, not sprinkling, not raining, just dripping, straight down from the heavens, like some kind of spooky tetevision special effect. Works for me.

From http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/common/all-saints-day:

All Saints' Day is a celebration of all Christian saints, particularly those who have no special feast days of their own, in many Roman Catholic, Anglican and Protestant churches. In many western churches it is annually held November 1 and in many eastern churches it is celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost. It is also known as All Hallows Tide, All-Hallomas, or All Hallows' Day.

What do people do?

All Saints' Day is observed by Christians in many countries around the world. In countries such as Spain, Portugal and Mexico, offerings are made on this day. In countries such as Belgium, Hungary and Italy people bring flowers to the graves of dead relatives. In other parts of Europe, such as Austria, Croatia, Poland, and Romania, it is customary to light candles on top of visiting graves of deceased relatives. It is also observed in parts of Asia, such as the Philippines, where people visit graves of deceased relatives and clean or repair them. They also lay flowers on the graves and light candles.

In France church services in memory of all the saints are held on November 1 but by the evening the focus turns towards the dead. Cemeteries everywhere are crowded with people who come to clean and decorate family graves. All Saints' Day is closely tied with All Souls' Day, held on November 2, which is dedicated to prayers of the dead who are not yet glorified.

... It is not a nationwide public holiday in countries such as Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, or the United States. However, many Christians observe All Saints’ Day in these and other countries.

Background

According to some sources, the idea for All Saints' Day goes back to the fourth century when the Greek Christians kept a festival on the first Sunday after Pentecost (in late May or early June) in honor of all martyrs and saints. Other sources say that a commemoration of “All Martyrs” began to be celebrated as early as 270 CE but no specific month or date is recorded. Pope Gregory IV made All Saints' Day an authorized holiday in 837 CE. It is speculated that the chosen date for the event, November 1, may have been an attempt to supplant the pagan Festival of the Dead (also known as Samhain or the feast of Saman, lord of death).

All Saints' Day is not to be confused with All Souls’ Day, which was first instituted at the monastery in Cluny in 993 CE and quickly spread among Christians.

Symbols
Symbols commonly associated with All Saints’ Day are:

  • A sheaf of wheat.
  • Rayed Manus Dei (hand of God).
  • The crown.
  • Symbols (including images) of individual saints.

 The liturgical color is white on All Saints' Day...

          From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX - 10/12/15:

  Here is my interpretation of the Lewis Coat of Arms all painted, and with sealed varnish applied.

Drying now to send to my dad,        Paul Harty... A very late birthday present!

   WOWZERONI! Thank you so much, Brent! This is just gorgeous!

   As your dad said, "Wow! I am so impressed! It is beautiful, Brent! Your efforts have resulted in the best rendition of the Lewis Coat of Arms that I have ever seen, bar none! I simply love the dragon on the shield! He actually looks like a dragon! A picture of it is worth more exclamations of approval, but to have it on a plaque, well, words just flat cannot express the joy and appreciation that I have for your work. You are extremely talented, Brent! Extremely talented! The old saying, 'Ya done good!' is an understatement."

 
 


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 10/31/15 - "Find Kleenex, this will get you.":

BONUS RECIPES (Sorry, not theme related):  


http://www.bigredkitchen.com/2012/02/mason-jar-self-buttering-biscuits/ - Robin Sue's Mason Jar Self-Buttering Biscuits - "Your mouth will be watering after one smell of these Mason Jar Self-Buttering Biscuits. Recipes in a jar could not get any easier than this. Just butter the insides of the jars and fill them with biscuit batter to make these flaky treats. These biscuits would go great with a delicious brunch spread."

http://www.bigredkitchen.com/2010/12/advent-day-13-pool-of-butter-biscuits/ -  Robin Sue's Pool of Butter Biscuits - "The thing about biscuits that I do not like is rolling them out- such a big mess- flour everywhere. Although thekitchn rolls theirs out, I figured I could simply spread the dough out in the dish over that big pool of melted butter. You see, in this recipe you do not cut the butter into the biscuit dough, you melt it in the dish then bake the biscuits in that golden pool of goodness."

http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2008/09/apple-dumplings.html - The Best Apple Dumplings by The Pioneer Woman via Christy - "Have you ever heard of a dessert dumpling made with Mountain Dew? It sounds crazy, we know, but these Easy Apple Dumplings have an unforgettable flavor that say otherwise. Made with cinnamon and sugar, and baked until they are golden brown, you have to try them with vanilla ice cream to get the full experience. Enjoy!"

For All the Saints

- Lyrics by Anglican Bishop William Walsham How (13 Dec 1823 - 10 Aug 1897), 1864

Music (Sine Nomine - literally, "without name") by
Ralph Vaughan Williams (12 Oct 1872 - 26 Aug 1958), 1906
 

For all the saints
who from their labors rest,
Who thee by faith
before the world confessed.
Thy name, O Jesus,
be forever blest.
Alleluia!
Alleluia!

Thou wast their Rock,
their Fortress and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their captain
in the well-fought fight;
Thou, in the darkness drear,
their one true light.
Alleluia!
Alleluia!

O may Thy soldiers,
faithful, true, and bold,
Fight as the saints
who nobly fought of old,
And win with them
the victor's crown of gold.
Alleluia!
Alleluia!

And when the strife is fierce,
the warfare long,
Steals on the ear
the distant triumph song,
And hearts are brave again,
and arms are strong.
Alleluia!
Alleluia!

From earth's wide bounds,
from ocean's farthest coast,
Thro' gates of pearl
streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost,
Alleluia!
Alleluia!
