Samhain and Her Sisters: Remembering the Holy Ones

Happy Samhain.  Have a good All Hallow’s Eve.

What other celebrations relate to these holy days? Here’s a video I put together for All Saints last year. It’s about all the different spiritual holidays that happen at this time of year that focus on remembering those who have gone before.

When I lead worship, I usually address benedictions to “my holy ones.”  I use this because we are all saints, we are all holy ones.  Today we remember all the holy ones who have gone before us.

The music is “Echo of a Lamentation” by a group of high schoolers (when they recorded it) from Massachusetts who called themselves Jaded Mandolin.
