The Christian festival of All Saints’ Day is rooted in the belief that there exists a spiritual connection between the heavenly realm and the earthly realm. Within the Catholic tradition, this holiday serves as a tribute to all those who have departed and entered the Kingdom of Heaven. All Saints’ Day serves as a means to express deep gratitude to God for the lives and deaths of His saints, encompassing both the widely recognized figures and those who may be less well-known.
The Solemnity of All Saints is observed on the first of November. Its establishment was intended to pay homage to all the saints, both those who are acknowledged and those who remain anonymous. Pope Urban IV introduced this observance as a way to address any potential inadequacies in the faithful’s commemoration of saints’ feast days throughout the year.
