A Holy Day of Obligation, and my wedding anniversary

November 1, 2011

Well, it’s November 1st again. On a sleety Saturday in Rochester, NY 31 years ago, I was joined together to my lovely spouse in holy matrimony. Thank you, my dear, for your love, kindness and gentleness. Hallmark would have us celebrate the day by spending $5 on an obligatory greeting card.

Today is also a holy day of obligation in the U.S. – All Saints Day. My website receives it greatest number of “hits” on these mandatory days of mass attendance – because Catholics want to know if they have to go to mass today. The six holy days of obligation in the U.S. require church attendance. Failure to attend mass without a really good excuse (are you coughing up a lung?) is a mortal sin. Observing the Holy Days is one of the five precepts of the Church – the bare minimum spiritual requirements for spiritual growth and entrance into heaven.

My Catholic friends, do not be deceived. Your entrance into heaven is solely based on coming to Jesus in faith – receiving him as your savior and foresaking any other false hope, especially man-made traditions. I pray that you will love Jesus and forsake these false, obligatory church traditions.

    I am not sure, but I think All Saints Day is an occult day! Halloween is on October31 followed by the real Satanic High Day! The Bible strictly forbids necromancy and communion with the dead! All of these dates are made from the Traditions of Man and not God!
    In addition, I am glad I got married on my birthdate…instead of a day of Holy Obligation, which would be a constant reminder of Satan! Christian humor
