All Saints' Day

Solemnity celebrated on the first of November. It is instituted to honour all the saints, known and unknown, and according to Urban IV, to supply any deficiencies in the faithful's celebration of saints' feast during the year.

We are all called to be saints.

These tombstones are in Milltown and LaFayette, Alabama. The photos were taken in the middle of the day so the lighting is harsh. I love the graphic designs of the sculptor. The rust and lichens growing on the stone is beautiful.
