~ Halloween Haunt With The ‘Saints’ ~

Have we been spooked out of celebrating a part of our Christian rich tradition on Halloween that we intentionally omit and deviate from costumes engaging in witchcraft, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils that Halloween costumes are traditionally modelled after, or are we simply out of fashion? Well, I’m glad I didn’t have to travel too far to celebrate All Saints Day (also known as Hallowmas, All Hallows, and Hallowtide) with the nuns in downtown Memphis.

I was planning on being a cool FBI agent for Halloween but the nuns dressed me as an angel for the Feast of All Saints. That is so awesome 🙂 Hanging out with the likes of “Saints Therese of Lisieux, Maria Goretti…”

All Saints Day Performance—with “Lucia/Jacinta and Francisco of Our Lady Of Fatima,” and of course “Saint Juan Diego of Our Lady of Guadalupe.” The kids loved playing their parts as saints and visionaries…with the costumes and all 🙂

With “Little Lucia? of Our Lady of Fatima,”…I believe. She’s so adorable!

So glad I was an “angel”… I didn’t have to memorize any lines!

With my fellow “angel” & “Blessed Mother Teresa”

Are you still shopping for a potential Presidential candidate that would fit into your core values? Are you on the hunt for someone who:

1. opposes to welfare and government funds but is in favor of government funds going to victims of floods, fires, and earthquakes who are in need, VERSUS someone who supports social welfare programs that make people dependent on the government and limit their initiative?
2. is against abortion who wants to save the lives of unborn fetuses?
3. is willing to increase the budgets for the military and for prisons on the grounds that they provide protection?
4. enforces the 10th Amendment?; someone who favors states’ rights over the power of the federal government? “All power not specifically delegated to the federal government by our Constitution is reserved for the states and for we the people.”
5. gives free rein in government regulations to support the expansion of the economy to allow small businesses considerable freedom to maximize entrepreneurship and increase their ability to hire more people?
6. will lead America to be energy independent to become energy superpower by tapping into our local/domestic energy supplies?
7. will prevent the triumph of crony capitalism that caters to special tax breaks and hand-outs to friends in the political world, etc.?; someone who actually dealt with this cronyism first hand, who has the bumps and bruises to prove it, fighting the corruption and fighting the power of manipulation in favor of one or more government entities?
8. will repeal the ultimate mandate, Obamacare?

Take it, Sarah… it’s yours! Throw your hat in the ring!
