Happy All Hallows Eve tomorrow

We carved a pumpkin tonight. Fun and enjoyable.
I'm not sure what we are going to do tomorrow night besides hand out candy. My son is almost 15 and had planned on trick or treating with the neighbor boy but now there is kind of concern going around about teenagers trick or treating. I guess I kind of understand but I think 14 and 15 year olds should still be able to trick or treat.
Oh well, we remember as Catholics that it is really an evening to remember what the next day is. All Saint's Day.

Dear Lord help us to educate our family for your glory.

"Since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it devolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence for God and others that a well-rounded personal and social development will be fostered among children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs."--Gravissimum Educationis (one of the documents of the Second Vatican Council)

Helping and Loving Our Neighbor

Corporal works of Mercy

Visit the sick

Visit the imprisoned

Bury the dead

The Spiritual Works of Mercy

Instruct the ignorant

Counsel the doubtful

Comfort the sorrowful
Bear wrongs patiently

Forgive all injuries

Pray for the living and the dead
