Marxism continues to spread its errors throughout the world, even after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Marxism's plan is to remove any notion of God in the mind of every human person. One of its tactics is to replace Christian feasts by secular, even pagan feasts. There are many examples, but for now, we will talk only about the feast of All Saints' Day dethroned by the feast of Halloween.
To come back to common sense and to thwart the hideous costumes of witches, devils, and other monsters of Halloween, the parish priest of Turners Falls, Massachusetts, a Pole, asked the children, for All Saints' Day, to dress like a saint of their own choosing: Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Gerard Magella, Saint Catherine Labouré, Saint Maria Goretti, etc. For the feast day, on November 1, a multitude of saints were represented in the church. The children of our great Pilgrim, Yves Jacques - Marie Elizabeth, Emile and Aimie - decided to personify Saint Maria Goretti, Blessed Jacinta of Fatima, and Blessed Carolina Kozka, a young Polish martyr of purity. What beautiful models to imitate, instead of imitating the witches of paganism that draws us more than 2,000 years backwards, before Christianity.
Here at the House of Saint Michael in Rougemont, on the feast of Saint Michael the Archangel, the glorious patron saint of our parish and of our Movement, the children dressed like angels and archangels. So, we had the impression of being in Heaven, and the children were delighted.
Children learn what we teach them. If we teach them evil, they will do evil. If we teach them good, they will do good.
One reads in the Life of the Saints, for All Saints' Day, on November 1:
"All Saints' Day is the feast of Heaven, the crowning of Christian life, the eternal rendez-vous, the reward of our forefathers on earth, and it must also be ours. What a strength a Christian can draw from the thought of Heaven, amidst the hardships of life and difficulties linked to the fulfilment of his duty!
Divine wisdom presided over the establishment of this feast, which was instituted by the Church in the seventh century. There is a countless multitude of unknown saints, which is increased every day by the arrival in Heaven of new chosen ones. So in order to make up for the impossibility of honouring each saint, it was right to institute a common feast in which could be celebrated the memory of all these martyrs, virgins, holy women, confessors – in a word, of all these heroes of truth and virtue, our fathers and elder brothers in the great Christian family. All Saints' Day shows us, in the most fortunate way, the Church of earth and the Church of Heaven holding hands. Finally, on earth, we need models and protectors. This feast of all saints answers these needs. Meditate upon and desire Heaven. Say often: 'Beautiful Heaven, I want to see you one day.' Yes, like the Little Flower, St. Therese of the Child Jesus, say: 'I want to see God.'
