October Feast Days
February and October are the busiest birthday months for our family. But October seems to outshine February because of my many devotions to saints who celebrate their feast days in October.
Whenever we pray the Apostle's Creed, I love the part that goes, "I believe in the communion of saints..." Being people who lived holy lives for Jesus while on earth, I believe they are enjoying their eternity in Heaven. I also believe that they are given grace to help those on earth...
October 1 is the feast day of St. Therese of the Child Jesus. You may know her as the saint who said to "Do all all things with great love." Her life inspired Mother Teresa.
October 2 is the feast of the Guardian Angels.
October 4 is the feast of St. Francis.
October 5 is the feast of St. Faustina.
October 13 is the last time Our Lady of Fatima appeared to the Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco.
October 15 is the feast of St. Theresa of Avila.
October 22 is for St. John Paul;
Oct. 23 is for Padre Pio; and
Oct. 28 is for St. Jude.
And these are just my October saints!
Communion of saints, please pray for us.
