All Saints Day is the day celebrated on 1st November that is soon after the Halloweens’ Eve in honor of all known and unknown saints. The day is also commonly known and All Hallows, Hallowmas, Feast of all Saints or Solemnity of all Saints.
Over the centuries after Christ, all the Christians who died a martyr’s death were supposed to live in God’s presence forever and were also entitled as saints. Thus, every year Christians would visit the Martyr’s tomb on their anniversary and celebrate the Eucharist. Over the years, the number of martyrs kept on increasing and soon the entire calendar marked some or the other saint.
Hence, Pope Gregory IV in the ninth century designated November 1 as the day to remember all the saints living in the God’s presence.
This year too we will be celebrating November 1 as the All Saints Day 2015 by passing on All Saint Day Quotes and All Saint Day Wishes and by singing the All Saint Day Prayers. In this post we will be sharing with you some of the best All Saint Day Quotes, Wishes, and Prayers that you can use on this day to pay your tribute to all the saints known and unknown.
All Saint Day Quotes
“For centuries the church has confronted the human community with role models of greatness. We call them saints when what we really often mean to say is ‘icon,’ ‘star,’ ‘hero,’ ones so possessed by an internal vision of divine goodness that they give us a glimpse of the face of God in the center of the human. They give us a taste of the possibilities of greatness in ourselves.” – Joan D. Chittister
“What does Sunday, the day of the Lord, mean for us? It is a day for rest and for family, but first of all a day for Him.” – Pope Benedict XVI
“I am reminded of the biblical use of the term saint in the book of Acts. That it applies to each of us. All who are attempting to imitate the Christ in their lives merit the title of ‘saint.’ Some do it more fully than others and are willing to let go of more to get the job done.” – Matthew Fox
“It is true that every day has its own evil, and its good too. But how difficult must life be, especially farther on when the evil of each day increases as far as worldly things go, if it is not strengthened and comforted by faith. And in Christ all worldly things may become better, and, as it were, sanctified. Theo, woe is me if I do not preach the Gospel; if I did not aim at that and possess faith and hope in Christ, it would be bad for me indeed, but no I have some courage.” – Vincent Van Gogh quotes

“Keep in mind that our community is not composed of those who are already saints, but of those who are trying to become saints. Therefore let us be extremely patient with each other’s faults and failures.” – Mother Teresa
