All Saints Day is the day celebrated on 1st November that is soon after the Halloweens’ Eve in honor of all known and unknown saints. The day is also commonly known and All Hallows, Hallowmas, Feast of all Saints or Solemnity of all Saints.
Over the centuries after Christ, all the Christians who died a martyr’s death were supposed to live in God’s presence forever and were also entitled as saints. Thus, every year Christians would visit the Martyr’s tomb on their anniversary and celebrate the Eucharist. Over the years, the number of martyrs kept on increasing and soon the entire calendar marked some or the other saint.
Hence, Pope Gregory IV in the ninth century designated November 1 as the day to remember all the saints living in the God’s presence.
This year too we will be celebrating November 1 as the All Saints Day 2015 by passing on All Saint Day Quotes and All Saint Day Wishes and by singing the All Saint Day Prayers. In this post we will be sharing with you some of the best All Saint Day Quotes, Wishes, and Prayers that you can use on this day to pay your tribute to all the saints known and unknown.
All Saint Day Quotes
“For centuries the church has confronted the human community with role models of greatness. We call them saints when what we really often mean to say is ‘icon,’ ‘star,’ ‘hero,’ ones so possessed by an internal vision of divine goodness that they give us a glimpse of the face of God in the center of the human. They give us a taste of the possibilities of greatness in ourselves.” – Joan D. Chittister
“What does Sunday, the day of the Lord, mean for us? It is a day for rest and for family, but first of all a day for Him.” – Pope Benedict XVI
“I am reminded of the biblical use of the term saint in the book of Acts. That it applies to each of us. All who are attempting to imitate the Christ in their lives merit the title of ‘saint.’ Some do it more fully than others and are willing to let go of more to get the job done.” – Matthew Fox
“It is true that every day has its own evil, and its good too. But how difficult must life be, especially farther on when the evil of each day increases as far as worldly things go, if it is not strengthened and comforted by faith. And in Christ all worldly things may become better, and, as it were, sanctified. Theo, woe is me if I do not preach the Gospel; if I did not aim at that and possess faith and hope in Christ, it would be bad for me indeed, but no I have some courage.” – Vincent Van Gogh quotes
“All of the places of our lives are sanctuaries; some of them just happen to have steeples. And all of the people in our lives are saints; it is just that some of them have day jobs and most will never have feast days named for them.” – Robert Benson
“You Cannot Be Half a Saint…
You Must Be a Whole Saint…
Or No Saint At All! ” – St. Therese of Lisieux
“The challenge of the saints of the twenty-first century is to begin again to comprehend the sacred in the ten thousand things of our world; to reverence what we have come to view as ordinary and devoid of spirit.” – Edward Hays
“All my day is spent dealing with other people. When I come home I like it to be empty. The presence of others in my house kind of annoys me. I love coming home and shutting the doors. I feel brain dead. I’m relatively available, but not to live with.” – Graham Norton
“Keep in mind that our community is not composed of those who are already saints, but of those who are trying to become saints. Therefore let us be extremely patient with each other’s faults and failures.” – Mother Teresa
“Remember the sufferings of Christ, the storms that were weathered… the crown that came from those sufferings which gave new radiance to the faith… All saints give testimony to the truth that without real effort, no one ever wins the crown.” – Thomas Becket
“It is my meditation all the day, and more than my meat and drink, to know how I shall make the Saints of God comprehend the visions that roll like an overflowing surge before my mind.” – Joseph Smith Jr
“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment. You live in the light, you die in the light. You take it all one day at a time.” – Unknown
“Believe on me as the Scripture has said. For in theat great day all Saints will rise up from the dead.” – Kim Burrell
“With all his greatness and accomplishments on the guitar, Dime will be missed more for his giving personality, charisma, caring for others, love and most of all his HEART!! Twice as big as the state of TEXAS!!!!!!!!!!!! Dime gave it all every day to each and every one of us and our lives have forever been hollowed without him…Thanks to all of you for reaching out to us in this time of our immeasurable loss.

Eternal rest grant upon them,
O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

so that they may have the right to the tree of life,

All Saints Day Prayers
How shining and splendid are your gifts, O Lord
which you give us for our eternal well-being
Your glory shines radiantly in your saints, O God
In the honour and noble victory of the martyrs.
The white-robed company follow you,
bright with their abundant faith;
They scorned the wicked words of those with this world’s power.
For you they sustained fierce beatings, chains, and torments,
they were drained by cruel punishments.
They bore their holy witness to you
who were grounded deep within their hearts;
they were sustained by patience and constancy.
Endowed with your everlasting grace,
may we rejoice forever
with the martyrs in our bright fatherland.
O Christ, in your goodness,
grant to us the gracious heavenly realms of eternal life.
Cherubim and Seraphim;
all Saints of God,
holy men and women,
and especially my patrons:
intercede for me
that I may be worthy
to offer this Sacrifice to almighty God,
to the praise and glory of His name,
for my own welfare
and also that of all His holy Church. Amen.
who hast knit together thine elect
in one communion and fellowship
in the mystical body of Your Son, Christ our Lord:
Give us grace so to follow Your blessed saints
in all virtuous and godly living,
that we may come
to those ineffable joys
that thou hast prepared for those
who unfeignedly love thee;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth,
one God, in glory everlasting. Amen
Father, All-Powerful and ever-living God,
today we rejoice in the holy men and women
of every time and place.
May their prayers bring us your forgiveness and love
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty and Everlasting God,
who dost enkindle the flame of Thy love in the hearts of the saints,
grant unto us the same faith and power of love;
that, as we rejoice in their triumphs
we may profit by their examples, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Hope the above All Saints Day Quotes, All Saints Day Wishes and All Saints Day Prayers help you in paying your tribute to all the Saints on this All Saints Day 2015.
