In today’s Refill:
Fr. Drew Curry from Precious Blood parish and Fr. Matt Coonan from St. Therese and St. Henry parishes give us a little preview of the themes of the readings every Friday. This week, they’re sharing their thoughts about the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes for All Saints Day.
Halloween is tomorrow which for Catholics kicks off Hallowtide – a few days of remembering the dead. Halloween is All Hallows Eve, All Hallows being All Saints Day. But how did we go from celebrating the holiest people to the spooky, creepy even evil vibes of Halloween? And is it okay for Catholics to even celebrate Halloween in its modern form? Well, the Fathers from Catholic Bytes are here to help us make sense of it! Most of us don’t have time to sit down and study the faith, so Catholic Bytes has an opportunity to learn more about Catholicism and grow in our relationship with the Lord with short conversations ranging from faith fundamentals, Scripture, dogma, morals, liturgy, spirituality, saints, and Church history and even Halloween.
