Halloween Reflection

Did you know that Halloween started as a Catholic celebration? “Halloween” is a contraction of “All Hallows Evening,” which refers to the October 31st vigil of All Saints Day, an annual Holy Day of Obligation on November 1st. This day is then followed by the Feast of All Souls on November 2nd.


These two feasts remind us of two important truths: #1, we will die and must embrace that reality. #2, Jesus has conquered death, and we can join Him and the Saints in glory if we repent and follow Him.


As we celebrate Halloween, we should keep these truths in mind.  It is good to dress up in fun costumes, but we should avoid demonic and gruesome outfits that glamorize evil and despair, because we believe in the Resurrection and should never give up hope!


You can learn more about the Catholic approach to Halloween by clicking here to read an article from Bishop Konderla about the celebration of Halloween within the Diocese of Tulsa, OK.

A Video Reflection from Fr. Mike Schmitz

The phrase “dark night of the soul” is thrown around quite a bit in Catholic circles, but what does it mean exactly? In this video, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains precisely what is happening in our souls when we feel this kind of spiritual darkness, and he encourages us to hang in there when it happens; because it means God is preparing our souls for much greater things.
