The veil it is said in the ancient traditions tonight, the veil between this world and the dead is thin. It is at this time that it is an act of reverence and love to our ancestors to remember their lives. Their joys, their sufferings, their loves, their hopes. I believe they are with us still and look upon us with love and care. And they deserve our recognition in return.
For Christians we especially remember today those of saintly disposition, those who have protected and defended and taught and lived the Gospel of Jesus Christ and made it to be that it has survived to our day, we their descendents give them the honor due their name and sacrifice.
It is a night of Hallowed-ness. Sacrality and depth.
