All Saints and Blesseds of the Society of Jesus


All Saints and Blesseds of the Society of Jesus (Feast)

Following on the celebration of All Saints (November 1), today’s feast honours the Jesuits who are with God in glory: 42 canonised saints, 131 blesseds, 36 venerables and many others, who, in the faithful fulfilment of their calling in the Society of Jesus, are now face to face with their Lord in unending happiness. This celebration calls to mind the power of God shining through human weakness and the reward given to those who, in the words of the Spiritual Exercises, “faithfully labour under the banner of Christ’s cross”.
