Saint of the Day

The Knoll of Nathalan is dedicated to St. Knoll of Nathalan. Knoll was born a Scot and, according to history, was a wealthy man. He became a monk and made his living by cultivating the land, which he found to be conducive to contemplation. Patrick Duffy narrates his life story. Tulachnathlak, also known as St Knoll of Nathalan, is a mountain in northern Ireland. Originally from the Scottish settlement of Tullicht, near Aberdeen, where he is supposed to have erected a chapel, Robert Burns is known as the “Scotsman by birth.” He chose a great location, which was known as Tulachnathlak, or the knoll of Nathalan, because of its natural beauty.

  • Nathalan is also credited with the construction of churches at Bothelim and Colle (Cowie).
  • Nathalan is shown as a wealthy nobleman in the 16th centuryAberdeen Breviary, who opted to cultivate the land in order to dedicate himself to God as a hermit in order to devote himself to God.
  • He is lauded for having made his life by nurturing the land, which he describes as “the closest thing a human being can get to heavenly contemplation.” He discovered that farming may also act as a form of penance for him.
  • The narrative of Nathalan has aspects of legend as well.
  • Then, after realizing the gravity of his actions and feeling regret, he decided to punish himself by locking his hand and leg together with an iron lock and tossing the key into the River Dee to symbolize his repentance.
  • He travels to Rome and is elevated to the position of bishop.
  • After reaching the sacred city, he was approached by a young child who offered him a fish for sale.
  • When the Pope learned of this miracle, he immediately appointed Nathalan to the position of bishop!

» Take advantage of our e-book series on the Liturgical Seasons! In the writings of Archbishop Hildebert of Tours, the Magi are referred to as “saints” for the very first time (1133). By the eleventh century, their reverence had extended over all of European history. Due to the fact that the Church’s authorities did not forbid this cult, Epiphany became known as the “Feast of the Three Holy Kings” in most countries throughout Europe. In fact, the term Magi is not of Hebrew origin, but rather of Indo-European origin, and it literally translates as “great, distinguished.” Because the word was well-known to the people of Palestine, Saint Matthew used it without providing any further explanation.

  1. A highly revered class of priestly academics, they dedicated their lives not only to religion but also to the study of natural sciences, medicine, mathematics, astronomy and astrology, as well as to the study of astronomy and astrology.
  2. What was the source of the Magi’s arrival?
  3. Using current terminology, it might have come from any of the nations in the Middle East, such as Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, or India.
  4. The title of “kings” was bestowed on them by popular tradition very early in the Christian period.

According to Biblical prophecies, which described the conversion of the pagans and, although not specifically referring to the Magi, were applied to their visit: “The kings of Tharsis and the islands shall offer gifts; the kings of Arabia and Sheba shall bring gifts.” The kings of Tharsis and the islands shall offer gifts.

  1. They will all arrive from Sheba, bringing with them gold and frankincense, according to the prophet.
  2. The Christians of the Middle East have a long-standing tradition of the twelve Magi.
  3. In the western Church, a steadily growing tradition assigned a numerical value to their number: three.
  4. The number three was chosen for a variety of reasons, including an early mythology that they symbolized all of mankind in the form of three great races.

The bookCollectanea et Flores, according to Saint Bede the Venerable (735), contains a narrative about their names and appearance that dates back to an earlier period: In the first place, there was Melchior, who was an old man with white hair and a great beard who presented gold to the Lord as if he were offering it to his monarch.

  1. Baltasar was the name given to the third figure, who was of dark complexion and had a thick beard; the myrrh he held in his hands foreshadowed the death of the Son of Man.
  2. Following his instruction in Christianity, he administered baptism to the three kings of Babylon.
  3. It is stated that the star of Bethlehem appeared to them once again, bringing them together as they approached the conclusion of their lives.
  4. It was in 1164 when Emperor Frederick Barbarossa seized them from the Archbishop of Milan and had them brought to the city of Köln.
  5. Christmas During the weekday, Day Fifteen is the time of day when the first rays of sunlight begin to sparkle, enlighten, and dispel the darkness.
  6. The fact is that a gloomy world may be physically illuminated by divine, supernatural intervention upon the natural world makes perfect sense.

  8. As a result, the wax is considered to be a perfect representation of the flesh of Jesus Christ, who was born to a virgin mother.

This has led to the additional thought that the wick represents more specifically the soul of Jesus Christ, and the flame represents the Divinity, which absorbs and controls both the wick and the flame. —Catholic Encyclopedia (in English)

All Saints’ Day is also known as All Hallows Tide, All-Hallomas, or All Hallows’ Day, and it is observed in many parts of the United States, particularly in communities with a substantial Roman Catholic population, as well as in other countries.

It is observed in the traditional French fashion by the descendants of French Canadian pioneers in the St Martinsville area of Louisiana on this day, by putting floral arrangements and lighting candles on graves of all kinds, including those of the most obscure ancestors.

Some eastern churches in the United States observed All Saints’ Day on the first Sunday after Pentecost, which was the first Sunday after Pentecost in some years.

Day After Halloween

Halloween, which is a shortened version of the word “All Hallows’ Eve,” is also intimately associated with All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, which are both celebrated on the same day. All Saints’ Day is held on the first Sunday in November in the United Methodist Church to commemorate the lives of those who have died while members of the local church community. As each person’s name is shouted out, a candle is lighted, and a prayer is made for that person’s soul following that. During the days of November 1 and 2, many Latin American communities in the United States organize celebrations that coincide with All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, respectively (November 2).

It has been speculated that the origins of All Saints’ Day date back to the fourth century, when the Greek Christians celebrated a feast on the first Sunday after Pentecost (in late May or early June) in honor of all martyrs and saints, according to some accounts.

In 837 CE, Pope Gregory IV declared All Saints’ Day to be an officially recognized feast. Some believe that the date chosen for the event, November 1, may have been an attempt to supersede pagan rituals that took place around the same time period.

All Saints’ Day – The Meaning and History Behind November 1st Holiday

Every year, we are reminded of our spiritual ties to the church, which is a good thing. It is known as “All Saints Day” and is observed on the first of November every year. Perhaps you were taught to conceive of saints as statues in a church building while you were growing up. The Bible, on the other hand, teaches something altogether different. What exactly is a saint? You certainly are. That is, if you consider yourself to be a disciple of Jesus. Anyone who puts his or her faith in Christ alone for redemption is referred to as a “saint” by God (seeActs 9:13,Acts 26:10,Romans 8:27,1 Corinthians 1:2).

  • The Roman Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church, and other Protestant groups all mark the holiday on November 1st, as does the rest of Western Christianity.
  • Those who believe in the existence of a spiritual connection between those in Heaven and those on Earth are the inspiration behind the Christian feast of All Saints Day.
  • A number of traditionally Catholic countries have declared it to be a national holiday.
  • In addition, personalities from throughout Christian history, such as Peter the Apostle and Charles Wesley, as well as persons who have directly inspired one to trust in Jesus, such as a family or friend, are commemorated.
  • It is observed on the first of November every year.
  • The Bible, on the other hand, teaches something altogether different.
  • You certainly are.

Anyone who puts his or her faith in Christ alone for redemption is referred to as a “saint” by God.

It is given by God Himself to any common, salt-of-the-earth individual who just puts their confidence in Christ to receive it (1 Corinthians 1:2).

And spreading misunderstanding about wonderful, biblical terminology such as “saint” is not what God wants to do.

Saints are people who reject the anti-faithalternative of attempting to appease God via their good works and instead place their faith only in Christ.


In other words, we have been elevated to the status of saints!

Skeptical? Consider this: if God can name the worldly, sinful Christians in Corinth “saints”—as He does in 1 Corinthians 1:2—couldn’t He also call you a saint in your own right? Anyone who puts their faith in Christ alone for salvation is regarded as a saint in God’s eyes, my friend.

All Saints Day’s Relation to Halloween

In the United States and several other nations, youngsters dressed as Dracula or demons went door to door to “trick or treat” yesterday night with much enthusiasm. Would it surprise you to learn that “Halloween” (as it was originally known) began as a holy Christian celebration? Would it surprise you to learn that? In Old English, the word “hallow” signifies “holy” or “sacred.” Consequently, “Halloween,” or “All Hallows’ Eve,” simply means “the evening of holy individuals” and refers to the evening before All Saints Day, which falls on November 1 on both the Anglican and Catholic calendars, and is celebrated on the previous evening.

A traditional Hallows’ Eve Ceremony is seen in the image below.

The Origin and History of All Saints Day

When the Roman Empire persecuted Christians in the early centuries, there were so many martyrs who died in the name of their religion that the Church established special days to commemorate them. To give an example, in 607, Emperor Phocas donated the majestic Roman Pantheon temple to Pope Gregory XIII. During his visit to Rome, Pope Francis ordered the removal of sculptures of Jupiter and other pagan gods, and the Pantheon was dedicated to “all saints” who had perished as a result of Roman persecution during the first three hundred years following Christ.

  • Because there were too many martyrs to honor them all individually on a single day, they were all commemorated on the same day.
  • People prepared for their celebration by keeping watch on All Hallows’ Eve – Halloween – the night before (possibly because of the strong holdover influence of the Celtic Samhain festival which many Christians in Ireland, Britain Scotland and Wales had continued to observe).
  • It is celebrated on November 2nd every year since.
  • People in Christian areas continued to provide food to the dead in the same way they had done in pagan times.
  • As has happened several times throughout Church history, precious Christian festivals can become so entwined with pagan practices that they lose their meaning as Christian celebrations.
  • Who are some of your favorite heroes from the annals of Christianity?

If you want to do something special on All Saints Day, think about and thank as many Christians from the past as you can recall, regardless of whether they are well-known or not, especially if their lives and teachings have had an impact on your own.

How to Celebrate All Saints Day

So, what should we make of All Saints Day this year? For starters, according to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, the festival is celebrated to commemorate “the oneness of Christians of all ages, regions, and races in Christ, and the completeness of that unity in heaven.” A feast devoted to all saints has been celebrated since the year 610, when the Pantheon in Rome was converted into a Christian church and dedicated to them all. Certainly, it appears that the prayer book has the proper notion.

All Saints Day Traditions

While customs for All Saints Day differ from country to country, the common thread is a day of celebration with family and remembering of those who have passed away. Participating in a mass is the most prevalent All Saints Day tradition among members of the Catholic faith. It is customary to recite the Beatitudes at mass, as well as to offer prayers for the Saints. Many people visit the cemetery sites of loved ones and relatives to pay their respects and to commemorate those who have moved on to the other side of the veil.

In Latino communities, relatives pay their respects at the gravesite with a feast that includes the deceased’s favorite dishes. In Italy, All Saints Day bread is cooked and shared with family and friends on the day of the feast.

All Saints’ Day: The history and traditions behind the holiday

All Saints Day is observed annually on November 1 by many Roman Catholics and other Christians throughout the world to commemorate the lives of all saints of the church who have been judged to have reached heavenly salvation.

According to the Eastern Orthodox Church, All Saints’ Day is celebrated on the first Sunday following Pentecost. An overview of the history and traditions of this holy day is provided below.

Where All Saints’ Day came from

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, while All Saints’ Day is today celebrated on November 1, it was originally commemorated on May 13, but the date of its commencement cannot be determined with confidence.

All Saints really means ALL saints

While many canonized saints are commemorated with their own distinct feast days (such as St. Patrick), saints who have not been canonized do not receive a specific festival in honor of their lives. All Saints’ Day honors people whose sainthood is known exclusively to God and those whose sainthood is known to others. Despite this, Catholic observances tend to be centered on well-known saints, particularly those who have been canonized by the Catholic Church.

A holy obligation

According to Catholic Online, All Saints’ Day is widely regarded a Holy Day of Obligation within the Catholic Church, which means that all Catholics are required to attend Mass unless they are prevented from doing so by illness or another valid explanation. However, because the holiday comes on a Monday in 2021, attendance at mass is not required. When the first of November comes on a Monday or a Saturday immediately preceding or after the Sunday sabbath, Catholics are urged, but not compelled, to attend mass.

According to Christianity.com, Methodists, for example, observe it as a day to express God’s heartfelt thankfulness for the lives and deaths of saints who have passed away.

Observances around the world

All Saints’ Day is commemorated as a public holiday in many nations, despite the fact that it is not observed as such in the United States. People in France and Germany get the day off from work, and companies are closed as a result.
