Good morning, and welcome to the Solemnity of All Saints (All Saints Day).
The month of November is dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory, whose feast is celebrated on November 2. The entire month of November falls during the liturgical season known as Ordinary Time, represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed. It arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time—the last portion of the liturgical year rep.
The last Sunday in November marks the beginning of Advent, the liturgical color changes to purple, representing a time of penance. Yes, it is sooner Christmas, and we made it through 2020 after all.
Sometimes when we sit alone in the darkness or commute to work, our minds start to wander. We focus on all the negatives and hope for a better time tomorrow or next week. It can be difficult to work through weekly challenges.
These thoughts can be a lot more sinister for some fighting mental depression or have been laid off during the COVD lockdowns. We wish the end is near, and unfortunately, we cannot see the end and are considering a dark exit.
Please listen and share this powerful song by Third Day as they send a message of hope. Have faith, and we will get through this. Reach out for help. Don’t be afraid or shy, asking for help from above. He is listening!
