"We are surrounded by witnesses. We are upheld and reminded of the goodness of God by these great witnesses of the faith throughout the centuries. The feast day of All Saints matters because the church is established by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. It matters because it is an incredible reminder that we are not alone. We are surrounded by the church throughout the world and throughout time. And it reminds us that people have walked this path before us, whose example we can follow."
