Heading into a Holy Day weekend, I thought this quote quite appropriate for my All Saints reflections:
"They who are engaged with the salvation of their neighbor, will gain more by an humble modesty than by an authoritative manner, and will gain victory sooner in retreat than in combat." - St. Ignatius of Loyola
I love making Armor of God paper dolls (from Ministry to Children) on the Feast of All Saints with my children. We read Ephesians 6 and talk about how to be like the saints, we need the armor of God. The paper dolls make great decorations for the month of November.
Happy All Hallows Eve, and Happy Feasts of All Saints and All Souls!
