Good morning! Today is All Saints' Day. What's a saint? Can
anybody tell me? (Let them answer.) Before I tell you exactly
what a saint is, let me show you this picture that somebody
painted. Here we see some people with halos around their heads.
They were painted this way to show that they were saints. The
artist felt that saints were very special people who were so
close to God that they were different than normal people like you
and me. The halo was painted there to identify them as being
these special saints.

Now, I want to tell you that this isn't true. Saints are
people who love Jesus and try to do what he tells them to do. Do
each of you love Jesus and do you try to do what he tells you to
do? (Let them answer.) Well, that makes each of you a saint and
that means this is your day, too.
